Summary note
A file containing documents relating to the legal case in the International Court of Justice (I.C.J.) about the crash of El Al flight 402. Subjects discussed in the file include Canada's approach to taking their case to the I.C.J. -- claims for cargo lost on board the flight -- British and American applications to extend the I.C.J. deadline to submit documents to the court -- and the deteriorating relations between the American and Israeli government lawyers engaged on the case. Documents in the file also include American requests for further information about aspects of the case -- speculation about which pilot was flying the plane -- and British officials' discussions of how to get quicker information about the American case in reciprocity for the sharing of their own information.
