A Father's Story: My Fight for Justice Against Iranian Terror
Jan. 10, 2019
Stephen M. Flatow
Stephen M. Flatow's 20-year-old daughter Alisa was murdered by a Palestinian bus bomber while traveling in Gaza in 1995. Flatow, a New Jersey lawyer, learned from investigators that Islamic Jihad had trained the homicide bomber; he then learned that Iran had directly sponsored Islamic Jihad. He sued the Iranian government in U.S. District Court in 1998, winning a dramatic verdict which included a huge amount for damages-- then, owing to an astute forensic accountant, he collected the judgment. Flatow's was the first case of an American citizen being granted the right to sue a foreign government for its liability in causing the death of a family member. This book details his journey to win justice for Alisa Flatow.
