5/ Seriously, if you had to list 1,000 "frequent critics" of Iran, would you name any of these people? They're not even "infrequent" critics. Their only critique of the regime is that it doesn't send Zarif to the US more often so that they can fellate him more thoroughly.

7/ Despite their constant defense of the IRI, they, too, recognize how vile and indefensible the regime is. Which is why they have to lie to the court and pretend to be critics, exiles and escapees just to seem palatable.

“fellate” Zarif? You went to Harvard law and all you can produce in evaluating a legal document is ad hominem attacks and profanity? Seven tweets and we still don’t know anything about the content of the complaint brought by the plaintiffs.

There's a link to the case if you'd like to read it. I explicitly said the case isn't interesting, "but what's interesting to me is". I'm on my page to talk about what I find interesting, not what you want me to tweet about. And I'm not here to evaluate cases for you.
