The U.S. Supreme Court has rejected an appeal by Arab Bank, leaving in place sanctions imposed against it for disobeying court orders to provide account records to victims of overseas terrorist attacks, Bloomberg has reported. The bank argued unsuccessfully that it can’t supply the information without violating the criminal laws of Jordan, Lebanon and the Palestinian territories. “The unwillingness of the Supreme Court to review this interim appeal is not a determination on the merits of the case pending against Arab Bank,” the Amman-headquartered lender said. “Plaintiffs must still prove their case, and any judgment is subject to appeal.”
