About Daniel Cantor Wultz

For 16 years, Daniel passionately engaged life. He was a loving son, devoted brother, and faithful friend. During his life, Daniel embraced each day with natural curiosity; sharp intellect; abundant optimism; respect, acceptance and love for others; faith and profound reverence. Although he left the physical world at a young age, Daniel's exceptional character, charm and influence touched people of all ages around the globe. Following his tragic death as a result of a terrorist attack, Daniel's family established the Daniel Cantor Wultz Foundation as a vehicle to continue sharing Daniel's passions, values and wisdom with people of goodwill throughout the world.

D.C. Court Awards $332 Million Judgment Against Syria and Islamic
Republic of Iran for Role in Terrorist Attack that Killed Daniel Wultz

May 14, 2012 (Weston, FL) -- On the sixth anniversary of the death of 16-year-old Daniel Wultz, the United States District Court for the District of Columbia awarded a Weston family $332 million in compensatory and punitive damages in a landmark decision against the governments of Iran and Syria.

“When a state chooses to use terror as a policy tool – as Iran and Syria continue to do – that state forfeits its sovereign immunity and deserves unadorned condemnation,” Chief Judge Royce C. Lamberth wrote in his Memorandum and Opinion. Judge Lamberth expressed his hope that the Wultz family would “take some measure of solace” in the Court’s final judgment.

“In stark contrast to the Iranian and Syrian thugs stands the courageous Wultz family. The Wultz family resolved to fight injustice with whatever tools were at their disposal, and their patient determination over the last six years is a credit to both themselves and to the memory of their beloved Daniel,” Judge Lamberth wrote.

Tuly Wultz, Daniel’s father who was also wounded in the suicide attack that took place on April 17, 2006 in Israel expressed his gratitude to the Court. “For six years, we have continued to demand justice against those who murdered our son,” Mr. Wultz said. “The Court’s landmark decision against Syria and the Islamic Republic of Iran reveals for all the true nature of these regimes who deliberately target innocent civilians through their sponsorship and barbaric acts of global terror.”

Daniel’s mother, Sheryl Wultz, said, “We miss Daniel, our beloved son, everyday. A part of my heart has gone with him. We are thankful that Daniel’s life and passing continues to positively effect countless people everywhere. Judge Lamberth’s message to Iran, Syria and other terrorist nations of the world is that there are witnesses to their horrific acts. They can and will be held accountable.”  

Nitsana Darshan-Leitner of the Shurat HaDin Israel Law Center that represents victims of Palestinian violence said Tuesday that the group had won courtroom victories against Iran but never before against Syria.

Darshan-Leitner said there is a good chance for the victim's family to get compensation through frozen Syrian assets held by the U.S.

"For the first time an American court is holding the government of Syria accountable for its decades-long support of terrorism," she said.
