NPR's Jackie Lyden reports on a lawsuit filed by Nobel Peace Prize winner Shirin Ebadi against the U.S. Department of Treasury. Ebadi wants an American literary agent to help her publish a memoir in the United States, but her ability to do so is restricted because of U.S. sanctions against her native country, Iran.
