A Father’s Story: My Fight for Justice Against Iranian Terror
March 6, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm$18
This is the story of one brave father’s determination to bring his daughter’s murderers to justice through the American justice system. Stephen M. Flatow says he was “just a real estate lawyer in New Jersey” until April 9, 1995. Flatow’s life changed that day when he learned his daughter Alisa, a twenty-year-old college student traveling in Israel, had been the victim of a terrorist bus-bombing. After he discovered the Iranian government had directly sponsored the bomber, Flatow decided to sue the terror state. It was not to be quixotic, as Flatow, working with a superb Washington lawyer and an astute forensic researcher, not only won a dramatic verdict against Iran, but collected a huge judgment.
