Suit Filed in 1980 Death Of Salvadoran Bishop
As reported in an Washington Post article and elsewhere, a San Francisco-based human rights group filed a landmark lawsuit yesterday in the case of slain Salvadoran Archbishop Oscar Romero, accusing a former Salvadoran Air Force officer of involvement in the 1980 assassination of the revered Roman Catholic leader.

The lawsuit, based on the 1789 Alien Tort Claims Act and the 1991 Torture Victim Protection, follows an earlier, pioneering suit against two senior Salvadoran generals - José Guillermo Garcia and Eugenio Vides Casanova - for their involvement in the murder of 4 American catholic missionaries. This suit, and another about that place and time, is documented eloquently in our award winning film JUSTICE AND THE GENERALS.
