The Supreme Court next week will consider whether Congress went too far in mandating that billions of dollars in Iranian assets seized in the U.S. go to Americans who suffered from state-sponsored terrorism.

The beneficiaries would be 1,300 Americans who were wounded by or are survivors of those killed in terrorist attacks, kidnappings and bombings guided by the Iranian government, the plaintiff group says in court documents.

Those terrorist attacks include the 1983 Beirut Marine barracks bombing, in which suicide bombers detonated a truck bomb, killing 241 U.S. troops and wounding dozens more, the plaintiffs told the court.

But dozens of the peacekeeping forces who died are not represented in the lawsuits, and they will receive nothing.
