U.S. Judge Enters $9.4 Billion Judgment Against Hezbollah

A U.S. judge entered a $9.4 billion judgment against Hezbollah after the Lebanon-based group defaulted in a lawsuit over the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

U.S. District Judge George Daniels in Manhattan today said that Hezbollah, designated a terrorist group by the U.S. State Department, must pay the damages to insurers including Chubb Corp. that sought to recoup payments to business and property policyholders for losses from the attacks.
