A federal judge in Manhattan ordered Iran, Hezbollah, Ayatollah Ali Hoseini Khameini, Osama bin Laden and others to pay more than $6 billion to the families of victims of the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks.

The defendants lost by default by not appearing in court.

Iran denies any link to the attacks and is unlikely to pay the judgment.

In 2004, The 9/11 Commission Report stated, "We have found no evidence that Iran or Hezbollah was aware of the planning for what later became the 9/11 attack." But the commission found "strong evidence" that the country "facilitated the transit of al-Qaeda members."

Good luck with that one. And in related news,

No justice for Finnair

http://www.courthousenews.com/2012/10/04/50954.htm

Finnair must compensate passengers bumped after an airport strike grounded flights, the European high court ruled.

A one-day Barcelona airport workers' strike in 2006 forced Finnair to cancel its once-daily flight to Helsinki. Despite arranging extra flights to accommodate passengers, the ripple effect of the cancellation - impacting operations even three days after the strike - forced the airline to bump passengers onto other flights.

Finnair did not compensate passengers it bumped

Must be a bunch of liberal judges on the European high court. I'd have ordered the Barcelona airport workers' union to compensate the passengers.
