    Iran Must Pay Billions to 9/11 Families, U.S. Judge Rules

    By David Brennan On 5/2/18 at 10:21 AM

    On Tuesday, A U.S. judge ruled that Iran must pay billions of dollars to the families of more than 1,000 9/11 victims.

    The default order was issued after Iran failed to respond to a 2004 lawsuit alleging that the country provided assistance to the 9/11 hijackers, ABC News reported.

    The verdict does not make the Islamic republic any more likely to respond to the charge, which it has ignored since it was brought. More than anything else, the decision will be a symbolic victory for the families of the 1,008 victims named in the suit.

    The lawsuit was allowed to proceed in 2016 after Congress passed the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act, opening foreign nations to liability for the attacks. The act was primarily passed to allow legal action against Saudi Arabia for its alleged involvement in 9/11.

    Sue? Perhaps. Charge for war crimes along with the others responsible for the illegal military action under their auspices? Definitely.
