Federal Judge Lets Abu Ghraib Suit Against Government Contractor Go Forward

A federal judge…is allowing a suit…to go forward against a government contractor that supplied interrogators at Iraq's notorious Abu Ghraib prison. The Nov. 6 decision...places CACI International...in the legal hot seat with regard to the torture of Abu Ghraib detainees. But in the same order, Robertson extended civil immunity to co-defendant Titan Corp. (now L-3 Communications Corp.), saying that Titan's civilian linguists were directly attached to military units in combat operations and "under the exclusive direction and control" of the U.S. military. [also refers to Blackwater]
