WASHINGTON Dec 12 The U.S. Supreme Court on
Monday rejected former American International Group CEO Maurice
"Hank" Greenberg's bid to escape civil fraud charges in New York
accusing him of orchestrating sham transactions at the insurer,
even as his trial continues.
The justices left in place a June ruling by the New York
Court of Appeals that his trial on charges brought by the New
York Attorney General's Office could proceed. The ongoing
non-jury trial of Greenberg, 91, started in September. He has
already testified in his own defense.
