A judge on Tuesday dismissed piracy charges against six Somali nationals accused of attacking a Navy ship off the coast of Africa, concluding the U.S. government failed to make the case their purported actions amounted to piracy.
He also said Mr. Wolfe's right to due process had been violated.
"The court finds that the government has failed to establish that any unauthorized acts of violence or aggression committed on the high seas constitutes piracy as defined by the law of nations," Judge Jackson wrote in granting the defense motion to dismiss.
