Judge to decide on bail eligibility for 'Newburgh Four'

A federal judge is expected to file a written decision tonight regarding whether or not three of the four suspected terrorists from Newburgh will be eligible for bail.

The accused suspects, known as the "Newburgh Four," have been behind bars for 13 months after they allegedly plotted to bomb synagogues in the Bronx and shoot down military planes at Stewart Air Base in Orange County.

Defense attorneys asked yesterday for the trial to be dismissed because they claim their clients' rights to due process was violated.

The trial was put on hold last week because the prosecution refused to turn over documents to the defense.

Prosecutors say they would be ready by the beginning of August to resume trial.
