National Bank of Pakistan Was Sued For Attack on CIA Base in Khost But Says McLintock Late

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Oct 20 –   National Bank of Pakistan has been sued for its role in supporting or enabling a deadly attack by al-Qaeda and the Pakistani Taliban on CIA Forward Operating Base Chapman in Khost province of Afghanistan on December 30, 2009.    

   On October 20 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Alvin K. Hellerstein held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it. 

 Judge Hellerstein grilled plaintiffs' counsel on the lack of specificity in the complaint about the National Bank of Pakistan's knowledge.

 National Bank of Pakistan's counsel from White & Case called the plaintiffs opportunists from bringing in a designee of US sanctions, James Alexander McLintock, after they filed their complaint. They have moved to dismiss the complaint.

 The oral argument was to have been held on October 14 but was pushed back due to "the scarcity of court reporting services in the Court."

The case is Brown et al v. National Bank of Pakistan, 19-cv-11876 (Hellerstein)
