Israel not liable in American activist Rachel Corrie’s death, court finds
On March 16, 2003, pro-Palestinian activist Rachel Corrie died while protesting against the Israeli government, which was attempting to tear down a settlement in the Gaza Strip.

She and her husband, Craig, sued for $1, in a symbolic gesture. They lost.
