Supreme Court Quashes Iran Hostages Lawsuit
The highest court in the United States has decided Iran can’t be sued by dozens of Americans held hostage in that country three decades ago.
FOX News Radio’s Jared Halpern explains from Washington:
The Supreme Court is turning away a lawsuit filed by Americans held hostage at the U.S. Embassy in Tehran more than 30 years ago. The justices, without comment, agreeing with a lower court to dismiss the $6.6 billion class-action lawsuit.
Lower courts ruled the Algiers Accords – the agreement that released the hostages in 1981 – precludes lawsuits against Iran. The lawsuit argues 2008 legislation gives the 52 Americans the right to sue.
