JENNY RUBIN, ET AL., PLAINTIFFS-APPELLEES, DEBORAH D. PETERSON, INTERVENING-APPELLEE,
ISLAMIC REPUBLIC OF IRAN, DEFENDANT-APPELLANT, AND FIELD MUSEUM OF NATURAL HISTORY, ET AL., INTERVENORS.
Appeal from the United States District Court for the Northern District of and Illinois, Eastern Division. Blanche M. Manning, Judge. No. 1:03-cv-09370
Before Hon. DIANE S. SYKES, Circuit Judge
On March 31, 2011, counsel for intervenor the Field Museum of Natural History filed a letter with this court on behalf of the Museum and intervenor the University of Chicago's Oriental Institute. In the letter, which we construe as a motion to correct our opinion of March 29, 2011, counsel asks us to alter footnote 3 at page 6 of the slip opinion, which currently begins: "The Rubin plaintiffs are pursuing similar litigation against Boston‐area museums that possess artwork owned by Iran." Counsel suggests changing the sentence to: "The Rubin plaintiffs are pursuing similar litigation against Boston‐area museums that possess artwork alleged to be owned by Iran."
The motion is GRANTED. Footnote 3 shall be amended as suggested. We agree with counsel that this change correctly represents the status of the Boston‐area action and is consistent with our characterization of the action later in the opinion as "execution proceedings brought by the Rubin plaintiffs to attach property in the possession of a museum at Harvard University but alleged to belong to Iran."
