Directed Energy Attacks - Havana Syndrome

Investigation How to Investigate Potential Claim Our Legal Team
Our Legal Team

Moriarty is a past-trustee of the Marine Corps Heritage Foundation, which founded the National Museum of the Marine Corps, pictured here in the background.

Our team, along with a small group of other firms, successfully prosecuted the Khobar Towers bombing case on behalf of U.S. airmen and their families. We obtained an $879 million judgment in 2020. A judgment is a court order for one party to pay another.

A judgment is not the same thing as actual payment but is required before any payment can occur. Diplomatic staff with potential claims stemming from Havana syndrome must obtain a judgment before seeking compensation from the U.S. Victims of State Sponsored Terrorism Fund.

Jim Moriarty is a former Marine, Vietnam combat veteran and Gold Star father who lost his son, SSG James F. Moriarty, in a terrorist attack abroad. Jim has served the military community throughout his four-decade career. In the 1990s, Jim took up the cause of Vietnam veterans who had been defamed by CNN. The network aired a story that alleged the soldiers had targeted civilians and American defectors with sarin nerve gas. Jim successfully represented three of the veterans who had been defamed, forced CNN to retract the story and financed a documentary to tell the story from the Special Forces’ point of view. More recently, Jim ensured that one of those veterans, CPT Gary M. Rose, was appropriately recognized with the Medal of Honor in 2017. Jim represents military families in two lawsuits against privatized housing companies that allowed the families’ military housing to become so mold-infested it sickened them.
