Linde v. Arab Bank PLC
United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York
97 F. Supp. 3d 287 (2015)
Courtney Linde and other victims of terrorist attacks (plaintiffs) sued Arab Bank PLC (defendant) under the Anti-Terrorism Act. Linde claimed that Arab Bank knowingly provided financial assistance to Harakat al-Muqawama al-Islamiya (Hamas), which Linde argued was responsible for the attacks. At trial, Linde presented online postings and videos in which Hamas operatives claimed responsibility for the attacks. The jury returned a verdict in favor of Linde. Arab Bank moved for judgment as a matter of law or a new trial, arguing that the online postings were inadmissible hearsay. Arab Bank argued, among other things, that Hamas had an ulterior motive to lie about who was responsible for the attacks and that the postings thus were not reliable evidence of whether Hamas had actually engineered the attacks.
