Ruling due on bid to dismiss NYC temple plot case

NEW YORK (AP) - A man charged with plotting to blow up synagogues in New York is due to learn whether a judge will let the unusual state-level terror case go forward.
 
    
Ahmed Ferhani was due in court Monday. A judge is expected to rule on his request to dismiss the case.
 
    
His lawyers say it's based on insufficient evidence and dubious police tactics. The Manhattan district attorney's office says Ferhani was intent on attacking a synagogue and bought three guns and a grenade to do so. The buy was a sting.
 
    
Ferhani and co-defendant Mohamed Mamdouh were arrested last year. They've pleaded not guilty.
 
    
A grand jury declined to indict them on a top-level terror conspiracy charge. They still face other terror and hate crime charges that carry up to 32 years in prison.
