IRAN-UNITED STATES CLAIMS TRIBUNAL
SEPARATE OPINION OF JUDGE O. THOMAS JOHNSON
CONCURRING IN PART, DISSENTING IN PART
I find myself in complete, or at least substantial, agreement with all of the holdings in the Partial Award that concern liability. I cannot, however, agree with the reasoning and conclusions the Majority with respect to damages (or reparation) in five claims: the three MORT claims (G-7, G-S, and G-13), the claim concerning the Stradivarius violin (G-15), and the claim concerning legal fees incurred by Iran in connection with the attachment of the Chogha Mish artifacts (G-32). The amounts awarded in these five claims that, in my view, are unjustifiable account for well over half the total amount awarded to Iran in this case.
