The case of the day is Rubin v. Islamic Republic of Iran (S. Ct. 2018). The case arose out of a 1997 suicide bombing in Jerusalem, carried out by Hamas. The plaintiffs were US citizens who were wounded in the attack or who were relatives of the injured. They sued Iran in the District Court in Washington, claiming that Iran was liable because it had provided material support to Hamas. Iran was not immune from jurisdiction because it was a designated state sponsor of terrorism and the claim arose out of an act of terrorism. The case resulted in a $71.5 million default judgment.
