NEW YORK (Dispatches) -- A U.S. court’s ruling to seize Iranian assets worth about $1.7 billion outside the United States has been thrown out for now.
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit had ruled that the families of US troops killed in 1983 bombing of the U.S. Marine Corp barracks in Lebanon get access to Iranian funds in Luxembourg. But the U.S. Supreme Court on Monday rejected the ruling and sent the case back to the lower court so that it could issue a new decision based on a law signed by President Donald Trump.
