COURT IN HALKBANK CIVIL CASE ORDERS PARTIES TO FILE AGREEMENT BY MARCH 2

 


  The District Judge who dismissed the civil case against Halkbank, filed by victims of terrrorism acts supported by Iran, has ordered the parties to submit to the Court their agreement to file their action in Turkey by March 2, 2021. We have previously advised that the decision was based upon the Doctrine of Forum non Conviens,  inconvenient forum, meaning that three was another jurisdiction (Turkey) better suited to the litigation. The Order appears below.


Readers who wish more specific information should read our prior article, US Court Dismisses Iran Victims Suit against Turkey's Halkbank on Forum Non Conviens grounds,  published February 18, 2021.
