E29: Terror Victims Press SCOTUS for Redress


It’s no secret that some foreign countries support terrorist groups—either militarily or monetarily. And U.S. courts have been increasingly willing to hold those countries responsible when U.S. citizens are injured or killed in terror attacks … sort of.

Terror victims have had a difficult time getting any money from these countries, despite being armed with court judgments specifically finding them liable.

U.S. victims of a 1990s terror attack will try to convince the U.S. Supreme Court to make that process easier, in Rubin v. Iran.

Bloomberg Law’s Melissa Stanzione lays out the background of this trying process and describes the specific hurdle at issue in Rubin, as well as highlights the implications for future terror attacks in this Bloomberg Law podcast.
