California Court has ruled in favor of Turkey in the case of
Armenians' claims to the territory of the current U.S. military base
in Incirlik, Turkey, CNN Turk TV channel reported on Monday.

The judicial proceedings, which lasted about three years, ended by the
court's verdict that "this issue is political rather than judicial."

Thus, a group of U.S. citizens of Armenian origin lost the lawsuit.

In December 2010, a group of Armenians living in the United States has
instituted a claim against the Turkish government. The claimants
demanded compensation of $100 million from the Turkish government for
the loss of property of their ancestors. Their grandfathers allegedly
owned lands of 49.5 hectares in Adana, including the territory of the
current U.S. military base in Incirlik.
