Federal Judge Alvin Hellerstein said Wednesday that the airline was not responsible for the collapse of 7 World Trade Center.
Terrorists flew two commercial jets into the trade center towers on 9/11. Some crash debris pierced the facade of 7 World Trade Center, which collapsed later that day.
The corporate entity that owns 7 World Trade Center sued various aviation defendants, including United.
The judge said United could not have foreseen the chain of events that led to the building's collapse.
