Abstract: 

On July 16, 2018, the Islamic Republic of Iran (“Iran”) filed an application with the International Court of Justice (“ICJ”) in the Hague to institute proceedings against the United States.[2]  This was done in response  to the United States’ decision to withdraw from the 2015 U.S.-Iran nuclear deal, titled Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (“JCPOA”), because it was “one-sided” and “disastrous” for the U.S.[3]  Iran’s application is still pending and the ICJ will hold a hearing where the U.S. will contest the merits of the suit.
