CACI, plaintiffs preparing for trial over Abu Ghraib allegations

CACI International has won some early legal skirmishes in advance of a trial based on allegations that employees of one of its units were part of a group that abused detainees at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq. Last month, the District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia granted CACI’s motion to dismiss conspiracy claims associated with the case. The plaintiffs had argued that CACI interrogators conspired with soldiers to abuse detainees. The court also granted CACI’s request to remove parent company CACI International as a defendant. Now, business unit CACI Premier Technology is the only defendant…Three of the plaintiffs are having trouble getting to the United States to provide depositions…Despite having visas and airline tickets, they were not permitted to travel to the United States last month, according to the same court document.
