Court hears appeal of reparations suit [USA]

The national slavery reparations movement attempted to keep its cause alive in a federal appeals court Wednesday, arguing that major corporations financed the 19th-century slave trade and should have to pay millions of dollars today to slave descendants... Corporations including JPMorgan Chase, Aetna, Bank of America, Brown & Williamson Tobacco Corp. [now Reynolds American], CSX Corp., New York Life Insurance Co. and about a dozen others were named as defendants... But lawyers representing the companies said the current claims fail to prove a connection to the defendants.
