WHITE PLAINS - (AP) - A judge says prosecutors don't have todisclose before trial any payments from a federal informant to fourmen accused of plotting to bomb New York synagogues.

Defense lawyers have suggested the men were lured into the plotwith inducements ranging from cash to chicken dinners.

At a pretrial conference Friday, lawyer Vincent Briccettidemanded an accounting of any payments or promises of payments. Butprosecutor Eric Snyder said that was not required before trial.

Judge Colleen McMahon agreed but said the defense could formallyargue the point in a brief.

The men are accused of plotting to bomb two Bronx synagogues andshoot down planes at an upstate Air National Guard base.

They have pleaded not guilty and are being held without bail.
