Ruling entered in case against Iran, 9/11 lawsuit

Wiggins Childs Quinn & Pantazis is one of eight law firms representing about 60 families of 9/11 victims in a 2003 civil suit in U.S. District Court in Manhattan, families who sued Iran, saying the nation aided the attackers.

Late last week, the judge in the case entered a ruling agreeing with the claim that Iran and Hezbollah materially and directly supported al Qaeda in the attacks and are legally responsible for to-be-determined monetary damages to hundreds of family members.”

Pantazis was part of the legal team that developed the evidence over more than eight years to establish that Iran failed to stamp the passports of as many as 10 of the hijackers, a detail that would have alerted U.S. authorities to the scope of their global travels. His efforts included traveling to North Africa and conducting interviews with defectors from Iran’s intelligence agencies.”
