Federal Judge Allows Lawsuit Against Gaza Aid to Proceed

He denied the Justice Department’s request to dismiss the case.

Northern Texas U.S. District Court Judge Matthew Kacsmaryk allowed a lawsuit attempting to block federal aid to Gaza and the West Bank to proceed. The Department of Justice had requested that Judge Kacsmaryk dismiss the lawsuit filed by U.S. Representative Ronny Jackson of Texas, arguing that the case would needlessly involve U.S. federal courts in international policy.

The federal agency claimed that the federal aid allocated to Gaza, intended to provide food and water to low-income civilians experiencing a humanitarian crisis, does not inflict the harm that Congressman Jackson’s lawsuit suggests.

Judge Kacsmaryk stated that the lawsuit successfully demonstrated a “legitimate and warranted” fear of harm if the funding continues, which “recent world events further substantiate.”

Representative Jackson stated the decision “puts us one step closer to holding the administration accountable for its illegal funding of terrorism with American taxpayer dollars.” 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Judge Kacsmaryk as he hears the lawsuit regarding humanitarian aid to Gaza.
  • For wisdom for federal judges as they consider the standing of the cases brought before them.
  • For U.S. officials to be discerning about the state of the American economy and government spending.
