Courting Justice Book Review by Author Mark Dubowitz
This Book Courting Justice is written by author Mark Dubowitz. It is very informational and everyone should read this book. It is about the case Bnk Markazi v. Peterson. The case was about americans that were or are victims of Iranian terrorism and wheather or not they are allowed to gain belongings that are in the Central Bank of Iran. This would allow them to be able to collect on court judgments that are won against the state.
The book is 27 pages in length and does not take long to read at all, yet gives great, detailed information. The author is the executive director of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies (FDD), a Washington, D.C.-based nonpartisan policy institute, where he leads projects on Iran, sanctions, and nonproliferation. This book goes into great detail on how the Iranians are using the United States Legal system and that it can harm our national security. The author also gives details that are only facts. The book also states how Americans were wronged and how deals were broken. I would definitely recommend this book to other that would like to know more about this case and how the facts are told!
