Via Daily Alert, from Iran Ordered to Pay Millions to Family of Terror Victim:

A District Court in Washington ordered the Iranian government to pay $12.9 million in compensation to the family of Marla Bennett, 24, of San Diego, who was killed in a bombing at the Hebrew University's cafeteria in July 2002. Judge Royce Lamberth ruled that Iran was legally responsible for the terror attack because it supported and sponsored Hamas, the organization that carried out the bombing.
