Woods Set To Testify At 9/11 Trial

Actor JAMES WOODS could take to the stand in the first wrongful-death case stemming from the 9/11 terrorist attacks when it hits court in April (10), according to a new report.
The Oscar-winner allegedly testified at a deposition earlier this year (09) over his claims he saw several of the 19 Al Qaeda hijackers on his American Airlines flight from Boston, Massachusetts to Los Angeles a month before the 2001 attacks.
According to the New York Post, Woods grew suspicious of the Middle Eastern men onboard after noticing they didn't order drinks or speak to attendants but seemed to be carefully monitoring the crew.
He reportedly told a staff member, "I think this plane is going to be hijacked. I know how serious it is to say this."
Now Woods could once again be called to testify at a hearing into the deaths of flight attendant Sara Low and passenger Barbara Keating, who were killed when American Airlines Flight 11 flew into the World Trade Center's North Tower in New York.
A Manhattan federal judge has set 12 April 2010 as the start date for the case brought by the families of three victims, who are taking legal action against the airline and airport security.
A third lawsuit has been filed by the relatives of hockey scout Mark Bavis, 31, who was on United Airlines Flight 175 when it hit the South Tower.
Another 97 families refused to pursue legal action and instead accepted settlements from the September 11 Victim Compensation Fund, which divided up $500 million (£334 million) between the families.

James Woods is a great American to have alerted the crew on his flight. Others would be afraid to get involved. Now if only he could date girls more his age, lol.
