Almost a decade after their daughter was crushed to death by an Israeli army bulldozer, Rachel Corrie's parents are preparing for a judge's ruling in their high profile civil lawsuit against the military.
Corrie was killed in the Gaza border town of Rafah in 2003 as she and other activists sought to block the bulldozer in a protest against the Israeli military's demolition of Palestinian homes.
"We are here with a great deal of anticipation for Tuesday," said Corrie's mother, Cindy.
"We are hoping for some accountability here for what happened to Rachel."
While several foreign activists were killed or wounded in confrontations with the Israeli military during the last decade, Corrie's case has taken on special meaning for Palestinian activists.
For her supporters, she became a symbol of what they say is Israel's harsh repression of non-violent protest to occupation.
The driver has said he did not see Corrie, 23, and that her death was accidental.
But the Corries hope the court will apportion blame to the bulldozer driver and his superiors, who have all been cleared of wrongdoing in a military court.
The Corries are seeking a symbolic $1 in damages, along with compensation for the money they have spent bringing the case to trial.
The Corries said they spent more than $200,000 (£125,000) of their own savings to fly in witnesses, attend hearings and translate more than 2,000 pages of court transcripts.
The case is the first civil lawsuit of a foreigner harmed by Israel's military to conclude in a full civilian trial. Others have resulted in out-of-court settlements.
They were supported by an army of volunteers, including lawyers, translators and activists.
Since the Corries went to court in 2005, there have been 15 hearings and testimony from 23 witnesses.
The Corries said the case underscored how difficult it was for families to pursue justice for loved ones killed by Israeli forces.
"We found ourselves in a war of attrition with a state against a family. That's what it feels like," said Rachel's father Craig.
Criminal convictions of soldiers, who are tried in military courts, are rare.
Rachel Corrie belonged to the pro-Palestinian International Solidarity Movement, whose activists enter conflict zones and try to interfere with activities of Israel's military.
Supporters of Israel argue that Corrie, like thousands of other foreign activists, recklessly chose to risk her life.
"Rachel Corrie was injured as a result of her prohibited action, for which she is solely responsible, due to her considerable negligence and lack of caution," the Justice Ministry said in a statement.UPDATE: An Israeli court has ruled that the country is 'not at fault' over the death US pro-Palestinian activist Rachel Corrie, who was killed by Israeli military in 2003, Reuters have reported.
