McIntyre Tate LLP client testifies before the U.S. Senate
Posted By McIntyre Tate LLP
McIntyre Tate LLP client Daniel Miller recently testified before the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee sub-committee hearing on compensation for American victims of Palestinian and Iranian terrorism. Daniel was victimized in a HAMAS triple suicide attack in downtown Jerusalem in 1997. Along with several other American victims, he was a lead plaintiff in Rubin vs. Islamic Republic of Iran, a suit filed by McIntyre Tate LLP attorneys on behalf of five victims in the U.S. District Court in Washington DC. in 2001. After a four day trial at which international experts on terrorism testified, Judge Ricardo Urbina found in the victims favor and awarded them $71,000,000 in compensatory damages and $180,000,000 in punitive damages. Since then, McIntyre Tate LLP lawyers have pursued Iran in Chicago, Boston, Washington, California, New York and several international jurisdictions to obtain satisfaction of the judgment.
