An American International Group unit must defend the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and several contractors against scores of asbestos claims brought by construction workers on the original World Trade Center, a New York judge ruled Wednesday, saying coverage is triggered for claims tied to alleged asbestos exposures at the building site.

New York Supreme Court Judge Eileen Bransten denied AIG unit American Home Assurance Co.'s request for a finding that certain underlying asbestos claims against the Port Authority, construction manager Tishman Realty & Construction Co. Inc., aluminum producer Alcoa Inc. and now-defunct Mario & DiBono Plastering Co. Inc. don't fall within the scope of a general liability policy it issued to the transportation agency in 1966.
