The Jurisprudence of the Iran-United States Claims Tribunal


Oxford University Press

This chapter reviews the Decisions by the Iran–United States Claims Tribunal on certain issues. One result of the Iranian Revolution was the abrupt and massive departure from Iran of foreign nationals, including Americans. The concept of liability for wrongful expulsion was first referred to in dicta in International Technical Products Corp., et al. v. The Government of the Islamic Republic of Iran, et al. The Tribunal noted that the claimants conceded that they had decided to leave Iran in December 1978 because of the conditions then prevailing, and the Tribunal concluded that it could decide the claims and counterclaims without deciding whether they were expelled from Iran. The first expulsion Award by the Tribunal was Alfred L. W. Short v. The Islamic Republic of Iran, and it held that the claimant had failed to prove that his departure was attributable to wrongful conduct by Iran.
