Iranian Group Loses Defamation Experts / LUCILE SCOTT
09-Apr-2012 (24 comments)

WASHINGTON (CN) - A journalism professor and an economist cannot testify that an Arizona man defamed a nonprofit by writing articles that characterize it as an agent of the Iranian government, a federal judge ruled.

The National Iranian American Council and its president, Trita Parsi, tapped the experts for their lawsuit against Seid Hassan Daioleslam. They claim they were defamed by articles that Daioleslam wrote on and other websites.

"The thrust of plaintiffs' complaint is that defendant 'has published false and defamatory statements indicating that [plaintiffs are] member[s] of a subversive and illegal "are members of a subversive and illegal Iranian lobby colluding with the Islamic Republic of Iran,'" U.S. District Judge John Bates wrote, quoting the suit.

The only solution!

The only solution is wiping off the regime of the Mullahs and establishing a democracy in Iran. The rest is business as usual!

Your points well taken.  Thank You.

in any way celebrating this stuff. I do not understand the joy some people have when this kind of thing happens. Yes you might hate NIAC but do you really want MKO? I do not view MKO a viable option no matter what the sale job.

While bombs and bullets, starvation and separation are being planned and carried out for Iranians, we have to listen to US-residing advocates and activists battle it out in the US justice system's bottomless pit of legal costs. Follow Hassan Dai's money trail to find out who he is and who is backing him right now and why. I believe the same thing has been done for NIAC ad nauseum.

Most importantly, though, think of Iran and Iranians who have to deal with IRI criminals AND be punished. Think of them, because if this military attack on Iran takes place, Iranians will have to live with the IRI for another 30 years. In case you missed it, here is what Iranian civil society has to say about a potential military attack on Iran: //


Wow, there is a lot of celebrations going on here…

Though not clear for what,  a win for Daioleslam or a defeat for NIAC which all amount to little, if that,  when it comes to Iranians.


'Hambastegi' is the main key to victory

Hold your horses


the fact remains... SEYYED Hassan Daioleslam is still a Mujahed funded by the worst elements who want Iran destroyed.

A few things

by Veiled Prophet of Khorasan on


I am making these neutral observations for the sake of it.

  • The report refers to Dai as an "Arizona" man. I find this refreshing that Americans really view immigrants as American. If this was Europe or BBC they would say "An Iranian living in Arizona".
  • Aftabeh is a good sanitary thing. Why do you people oppose it? Should I go around with Klingons hanging from my bottom. 


So IRI Lobbyists FAILED dramtically :))

by Liberty on

Three years of legal battle is coming to an end soon to find out that NIAC had no leg to stand on from the begining! For instance, take what DJ Bates has concluded about NIAC's expert evidence:

"Given the multiple factual, arithmetical, and theoretical errors in Morse's calculations, the Court finds that Morse's calculations are ultimately not reliable enough to put before the factfinder."

This is pretty much, a typical example of what NIAC's misinformation is like in order to influence Washington politicians and lobby in favour of IRI!

NIAC = IRI Lobbyist = LOSER  :)) 


For the attention of all those who paid NIAC

NIAC'c lawyer asked me to thank all those who helped Telit Khan with their donations. He also said he was very happy with his new house.

Use your time and energy to create another organization.

by Mohammad Ala on

So much energy is spent on NIAC whereas these energies should be used to create another organization to find out what you can do.  LOL.

From reading the article, I could tell the case is not over or is it?  As my uncle used to say (RIP for my uncle, LOL) Jojeha ra akhar Bahar b shomarid.

NIAC is Staying there with IRR/IRI

by Azarbanoo on

to Milk them for his own interest which is their pockets.



by Simorgh5555 on

Yes, indeed! This is the end of the road for Parsi and his group of IR subordinates. Death to the Islamic Republic!


باز نیاکی ها خیط شدن!


Here is a great line by the judge for excluding NIAC's experts from testifying.


...their findings are not "sufficiently reliable or helpful to the jury"
because they are not based on "sufficient facts or data" that are the
"product of reliable principles and methods."


That in a nutshell describes NIAC's political views!



by Simorgh5555 on

If Trita Parsi runs out of funds for his lawsuit then he can always fax the Islamic Republic Special Interest Section of the Swiss Embassy for extra cash.


Tee hee.
