AMERICANS SUE HEZBOLLAH IN FEDERAL COURT IN NEW YORK



If you were wondering why the Americans injured in Hezbollah rocket and missile attacks recently sued only Bank Saderat Iran and Bank Saderat PLC, and not Hezbollah, the primary bad actor, they had a reason: a separate action was brought when the suit against Bank Saderat was filed. The Complaint is based upon alleged actions of Hezbollah that consititute "International Acts of Terrorism," pursuant to 18 USC §2231.

The prayer for relief requests:
(1) Compensatory Damages in the amount of $50m.
(2) Punitive Damages.
(3) the costs of the action, plus attorneys' fees.
