Jerry Skinner, Of Counsel
Friedman Rubin

“Recovering Damages From Hostile Nations.”

Internationally Acclaimed Aviation Attorney, Jerry Skinner will present, “Recovering Damages From Hostile Nations.” Jerry successfully recovered $2.7 billion against Colonel Muammar Gaddafi’s Libya for the 270 lives lost in the 1988 Lockerbie disaster which Skinner blamed on a bomb planted by Libyan intelligence officers. Now he has his sights set on recovering damages from Russia for taking down Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 with a missile, killing 298 civilians in the process. His quest to obtain payment from Russia has led Jerry to intelligence offices around the globe to prove Russia’s role in the disaster, including our own, with several road blocks along the way. When his office was ransacked at Christmas time in 2016, Jerry had a good idea who was behind it – the photo of Vladimir Putin left on his desk was a not too subtle clue.
