(AP) - TERROR CONNECTION: The state's highest court ruled that a Lebanese bank's use of a New York account for multimillion-dollar wire transfers establishes the basis for a lawsuit by Israeli victims of 2006 Hezbollah rocket attacks.

HIDING HEZBOLLAH? The lawsuit claims Lebanese Canadian Bank supported terrorism by handling international financial transactions of the Hezbollah affiliate Shahid Foundation. The lawsuit says the money was moved through an account at American Express Bank in New York.

BACK TO COURT: Attorney Robert Tolchin said the case now returns to the U.S. 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals, where he expects the claims to be reinstated.
