U.S. court rules for Beirut bombing victims in Iran funds case

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 07/10/2014 - 01:32
By Joseph Ax NEW YORK (Reuters) - A U.S. appeals court on Wednesday ruled that $1.75 billion in Iranian funds be turned over to families of the victims of the 1983 bombings of a Marine barracks in Beirut. The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York affirmed U.S. District Judge Katherine Forrest’s 2013 ruling that the money, currently held in a New York Citibank account, should be given to the families to help satisfy a $2.65 billion default judgment they won against Iran in 2007. The families accused Iran of providing material support to Hezbollah, which carried out the attack that killed 241 U.S. servicemen. The lawsuit was filed in 2010 after the U.S. Treasury Department uncovered the funds at Citibank, part of Citigroup Inc. The plaintiffs named as defendants Iran and several banks, including Citi, Iran’s state-controlled Bank Markazi, Deutsche Boerse AG’s Clearstream Banking SA unit and Rome-based Banca UBAE.

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 07/10/2014 - 01:28

A man walks next to a Bank of America branch in New YorkA federal judge has dismissed the city of Miami's mortgage discrimination lawsuit against Bank of America Corp, handing the city its first defeat in four suits that accuse major banks of U.S. Fair Housing Act violations. In a ruling on Tuesday that could affect similar legal actions by other localities, U.S. District Judge William Dimitrouleas said Miami did not have standing to sue under the 1968 law, passed to prevent discrimination and assure fair housing nationwide. Wells Fargo & Co, Citigroup Inc and JPMorgan Chase & Co are also facing lawsuits by Miami for allegedly targeting minorities for subprime loans that defaulted en masse during the last decade's housing crisis. "We believe the correct determination was made in the Miami case," Bank of America spokesman Rick Simon said.
