NEW YORK — A federal judge says there isn't enough evidence to support a claim that money from a construction company founded by Osama bin Laden's father supported terrorists.

Judge George Daniels in Manhattan dismissed the Saudi Binladen Group on Wednesday as a defendant in Sept. 11 lawsuits brought by families of terrorism victims and others.

The lawsuits were brought by more than 3,000 survivors of the Sept. 11 attacks, relatives, victims' representatives and insurance carriers. They allege that more than 200 defendants provided material support to terrorists.

The defendants include al-Qaida, its members and associates. The suit also names charities, banks, front organizations, terrorist organizations and financiers.

Lawyers did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
