Iran v. United States

Iran-United States Claims Tribunal

Case No. A15 and A24 (2014)

Facts

In 2014 Iran (plaintiff) filed multiple claims in the Iran-United States Claims Tribunal (the tribunal) against the United States (defendant) for violating General Principle B of the Declaration of the Government of the Democratic and Popular Republic of Algeria of January 19, 1981 (the general declaration) and Article VII, paragraph 2 of the Declaration of the Government of the Democratic and Popular Republic of Algeria Concerning the Settlement of Claims by the Government of the United States of America and the Government of the Islamic Republic of Iran of January 19, 1981 (the claims-settlement declaration). Iran claimed that the United States had violated the general declaration and the claims-settlement declaration by not terminating litigation in the United States courts after the claims had also been brought in the tribunal and by not terminating claims against Iranian officials. Iran claimed that pursuant to the United States’ Executive Order 12294, the United States authorized its courts to suspend, rather than dismiss and terminate, the claims. The tribunal considered Iran’s claims.
