The US Supreme Court rejected an appeal from Holocaust survivors who claimed they had been cheated out of money from the Swiss banks settlement. On Monday, the court rejected the claim that survivors in the United States should get more money from the $1.25 billion settlement agreed to in 1998. The judge overseeing distribution of the money previously ruled that more should go to survivors in the former Soviet Union because they're needier. A federal appeals court previously agreed with the judge's decision.
