Families of 9/11 terrorist attack victims scored a symbolic victory in multidistrict litigation over the attacks Wednesday with a default judgment in New York federal court against Iran after the Islamic republic failed to respond to allegations that it sponsored al-Qaida.

Jerry S. Goldman of Anderson Kill PC, who represents the O'Neil estate, said Thursday that the plaintiffs' attorneys in the case have every intention of collecting on behelf of their clients.
"The world is getting smaller and smaller," Goldman told Law360. "We'll use the processes of law... that allow you to collect on judgments just as in any other case."
