Colombian union to appeal court's dismissal of lawsuit against Coca-Cola

A Colombian labor union [Sinaltrainal] is appealing a U.S. judge's dismissal of a lawsuit against Coca-Cola Co. and local bottlers for allegedly conspiring with local paramilitary groups to murder, torture and threaten trade unionists at its plants.... In September, U.S. District Judge Jose Martinez, in Miami, threw out the union's lawsuit against four local bottlers, saying he lacked jurisdiction. The soft-drink giant was itself dropped from the lawsuit in 2003, also for lack of jurisdiction. [also refers to Sinaltrainal lawsuit against Nestle, Coca-Cola Femsa]
