13 A professor at the Université de Paris Ouest Nanterre la Défense, Pellet was a member of the Commission throughout the period described above, only leaving its service in 2011. Olleson served as an assistant to Crawford in the summer of 2001 during the Commission’s final consideration and adoption of the 2001 draft articles on state responsibility and at present is a barrister in London.

14 Because the volume was published in 2010 prior to the final adoption of the articles on the responsibility of international organizations, it focuses on the Commission’s draft articles adopted on first reading in 2009, not the final version produced in 2011.

25 For example, in 1996 the Tribunal issued an award in Case No. B36 concerning a U.S. claim for amounts due from Iran under a World War Ii military surplus property sales agreement. The Tribunal found Iran liable for breach of the agreement and ordered Iran to pay the United States more than $21 million in principal and interest. United States v. Iran, 32 Iran-U.S. Ci. Trib. Rep. 162 (1996); United States v. Iran, 33 Iran- U.S. Cl. Trib. Rep. 56 (1997); United States v. Iran, 33 Iran-U.S. Cl. Trib. Rep. 346 (1997).

The Tribunal found the United States liable and ordered it to pay nearly $8 million to Iran, plus interest. Atomic Energy Organization of Iran v. United States, 6 Iran-U.S. Cl. Trib. Rep. 141 (1984); Atomic Energy Organization of Iran v. United States, 12 Iran- U.S. Cl. Trib. Rep. 25 (1986).
