Spain's Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria, S.A., ("Banco Bilbao"), filed a motion in a Manhattan federal court seeking to block the families of various Cuban men, who were tortured and assassinated by the Castro regime, from collecting their successful "wrongful death" judgments.
Last Friday, U.S. District Judge Alvin Hellerstein rejected this effort by Banco Bilbao.
Apparently, Banco Bilbao -- one of the few European banks that still keeps a strong presence in Cuba -- felt that profit trumps justice.
It was wrong.
