The Story Behind the Arab Bank Trial
When federal jurors in Brooklyn, N.Y., issued their recent liability verdict against Arab Bank, plc, for helping finance terrorist attacks against U.S. citizens, the unanimous decision moved the plaintiffs one step closer in their 10-year quest for justice.
The 11-person jury’s verdict followed 10 years of litigation and appeals up through the U.S. Supreme Court. The first trial involved 24 terrorist attacks that were perpetrated by Hamas, a Foreign Terrorist Organization, in Israel, the West Bank and Gaza between 2001 and 2004. Following six weeks of trial and two days of deliberations, the verdict marked the first time a financial institution has been held civilly liable for materially supporting terrorism.
