WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court says it will hear an appeal from automaker Daimler AG that seeks to shut down a U.S. lawsuit over allegations that its unit in Argentina played a role in that country's 'dirty war' in the 1970s.

The justices said Monday they will review a federal appeals court ruling that allowed a lawsuit filed by 22 Argentines in California to proceed. The Argentines claim they were victims of human rights abuses while working for Mercedes-Benz Argentina.

The issue for the Supreme Court is whether the company has sufficient ties to California to allow a lawsuit to be filed there.

The case will be argued in autumn.
