Iran was ordered by a U.S. judge to pay more than $10.5 billion in damages to families of people killed in the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks and to a group of insurers.
U.S. District Judge George Daniels in New York issued a default judgment Wednesday against Iran for $7.5 billion to the estates and families of people who died at the World Trade Center and Pentagon. It includes $2 million to each estate for the victims’ pain and suffering plus $6.88 million in punitive damages.
Daniels also awarded $3 billion to insurers including Chubb Ltd. that paid property damage, business interruption and other claims.
Daniels found that Iran had failed to defend claims that it aided the Sept. 11 hijackers and was therefore liable for damages tied to the attacks
This trial has zero international value, but it indeed has value against Iranian frozen assets in US .

Beware the DNA evidence with saliva.
I must have done the same with a drawing pin.
No seriously. Does this sort of international conviction from a national legal entity has any value ?
Otherwise North-Korean courthouses should start issuing financial penalties against everything US-related.
Just a suggestion.
