NEW YORK/AMMAN —Al Ghad— The American Court of Appeals, the Second Circuit Court in New York city, affirmed the dismissal of lawsuits filed by non-American foreign plaintiffs, most bearing Israeli nationalities, before American Courts against the Arab Bank, in accordance to the 1789 "Alien Tort Statute” litigation.

The Second Circuit’s decision reaffirms the Appeals ruling in December 12th, 2015, in favour of the Arab Bank, to dismiss the claims.

In response, the Arab Bank’s administration welcomes the decision, being the third in the Bank’s favour since the settlement in August 14th, 2015, dismissing any liability against plaintiffs.
