U.S. District Chief Judge Royce Lamberth of D.C. is trying to deliver justice on the world stage in the terrorism arena.

The Blog of the Legal Times reports that Lamberth on Wednesday ordered Sprint Nextel Corp., to pay more than $610,000 it owes to an Iranian state telecommunications agency directly to the families of victims of a 1996 terrorist bombing in Saudi Arabia.

The legal blog reported that the families, plaintiffs have been trying without any success to collect a more than $591 million default judgment since 2006.

The legal blog reported that Sprint had objected. But Lamberth made the ruling based on a 2008 law that allows victims to seize cash destined for a country or state-owned agency in a terrorism case.
