Who knows what happened. Could be they settled out of court, could be she was threatened, or could be that she just gave up from exhaustion and wanting to move on with her life.

I've been in a suit before, and believe me, if it is the third option, I don't blame her a bit.



October 25, 2007 -- The widow of murdered journalist Daniel Pearl has withdrawn her lawsuit seeking damages against al Qaeda, a dozen terrorists and Pakistan's largest bank.

In a letter Tuesday to the Manhattan federal judge presiding over the case, lawyers for Mariane Pearl noted that Habib Bank Limited and the other defendants had not answered the lawsuit filed in July, but they otherwise did not explain their reason for dropping the action.

Daniel Pearl, 38, was abducted in Karachi, Pakistan, while researching a story on Islamic militancy for The Wall Street Journal. His beheading was videotaped and displayed on the Internet.

Among the defendants in the lawsuit were al Qaeda, the al-Rashid Trust, an outlawed Islamic charity, and Khalid Sheik Mohammed, the imprisoned al Qaeda No. 3 leader. .
