WASHINGTON — A federal US court on Thursday dismissed a $1 billion case brought against a group of wealthy American Jews, including the billionaire casino magnate Sheldon Adelson and media mogul Haim Saban, that accused them of supporting alleged Israeli war crimes against Palestinians.

 

Judge Tanya Chutkan of the United States District Court for the District of Columbia ruled that the lawsuit, brought by Palestinian activists against 49 defendants, was asking her court to decide on a matter outside the purview of the US legal system.
