The Court gave the parties until September 15 to exchange their briefs and set a date for the oral hearing by the parties for September 19, 2022.
By doing so, the Court extended the ban on returning Assadi to Iran until September 19 to undertake a substantive consideration of the plaintiffs’ request.
