Bloomberg Law: Terror Victims Can Claim Iranian Money (Audio)

Stephen Vladeck, a professor at American University’s Washington College of Law, and Jimmy Gurule, a professor at the University of Notre Dame Law School, discuss a Supreme Court opinion that has cleared the way for victims of terrorist attacks to collect about $2 billion in frozen funds that are tied to Iran’s central bank. In a 6-2 decision, the justices decided that Congress acted within its powers in 2012 when it passed legislation that granted the victims explicit rights to collect the money. They speak with Bloomberg Law hosts June Grasso and Michael Best on Bloomberg Radio’s "Bloomberg Law."
