Two French transport giants Veolia and Alstom could face trial in France over their involvement in the Jerusalem Light Rail project…Campaigners against the two companies have won a major step in a legal battle in France...Alstom was unsuccessful in preventing a Nanterre court from hearing the case against the companies when the Appeals Court of Versailles ruled on December 17 that the Nanterre court, where the case was first filed, had the jurisdiction to hear it.
