Tracy v. Iran (Information and Security)

John Adair and Gord McGuire successfully represented the plaintiffs in this claim to enforce a foreign judgment against the Republic of Iran under Canada's Justice for Victims of Terrorism Act. The case is the first terrorism claim to be litigated in Canada, and our clients were successful in obtaining an Order recognizing the foreign judgment and permitting execution against assets that Iran argued enjoy diplomatic immunity. The case involved significant novel issues in the areas of state immunity and diplomatic immunity, and received substantial media attention in both Canada and Iran.
