Judge Lamberth received his appointment to the United States District Court for the District of Columbia in November 1987 by President Reagan. He was appointed Presiding Judge of the U.S. Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court in May 1995 by Chief Justice Rehnquist. Judge Lamberth graduated from the University of Texas and from the University of Texas School of Law, receiving an LL.B. in 1967. He served as a Captain in the Judge Advocate General�s Corps of the United States Army from 1968 to 1974, including one year in Vietnam. Something tells me Judge Lamberth, an avid proponent of Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (the court that warrants wire-tapping!) has a seriouslyRepublicain Agenda! as he has presided over a few cases against the Clintons!
Judge Lambert misconductin the Indian Trust Fund Case had him removed from the case by the Court of Appeals.Judge Lamberth has thus gone back to his particular interest in Iran: he holds Iran responsible for any act of terrorism, with or without proof!
Last year, when the Bush-Drums of war were beating and the UN was being coyed to sanction Iran, Judge Lamberth decided to hold Iran responsible for the 96 attack in Saudi Arabia!
This year, as the Bush-drums of war are beating and the IAEA is being coerced to condemn Iran, in spite of lack of evidence, Judge Lamberth has fined Iran for 1983 attack on US barracks in Beirut
FOX and CNN are the first to report on this!
TEHRAN (AFP) — Iran said Saturday that a US federal court decision to fine Tehran 2.65 billion dollars for the 1983 bombing of a Marine barracks in Beirut was "baseless" and aimed at plundering Iranian assets.
"This decision is baseless. Unfortunately some courts in the United States, without listening to the other side's views and without investigation, issue verdicts that are not legally defendable," Iranian government spokesman Gholam Hossein Elham told reporters.
"These decision show political pressures to plunder Iran's assets in the US," he said, adding that Tehran would follow up the case through its representative at the United Nations.
