The aroma of BS is pretty intense here.  There was a press release
last week saying that she'd filed the case, and no Federal court would
rule in a week. I've been looking for the case in PACER, and don't see
anything filed this year against ICANN so the case doesn't even exist.

Further clues:

* ICANN has no agreement with Iran for .ir nor the new IDN domain, so
  .ir pays ICANN nothing.

* Address space for Iranian networks come from RIPE, not ICANN.  If Iran
  pays any address space maintenance fees, they'd go to RIPE, which is in
  Europe, not in the U.S.
