Appeals court revives Iraqis’ Abu Ghraib suits [USA]

A divided federal appeals court...revived two lawsuits by former Iraqi detainees who claimed civilian interrogators and translators participated in their torture at the Abu Ghraib prison, ruling that it’s too early to consider dismissing the cases...“This is significant because it permits these cases to proceed in the lower court and permits our clients to tell their story, and hopefully obtain justice for the torture and abuse perpetrated by each of these two corporate defendants,” said Baher Azmy, an attorney with the Center for Constitutional Rights who represents the former detainees...“We’re reviewing the ruling to determine how to proceed,” said William Koegel, attorney for CACI.
