Former Abu Ghraib Prisoner Accuses CACI, L-3 of Torture in Suit

A blacksmith who claims he was tortured at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq sued CACI International Inc. and L-3 Communications Holdings Inc., which provide services to the U.S. military. Emad Al-Janabi...accused the companies of torture, war crimes and civil conspiracy in the complaint filed in federal court in Los Angeles. In November, a federal judge in Washington said CACI must defend a lawsuit by Iraqi prisoners that...accuses the military contractor of assault and battery and wrongful death. In a revised complaint..., lawyers identified 250 former prisoners who were suing CACI. The judge in that case threw out similar claims against L-3. ``CACI totally rejects and denies all of the plaintiffs' allegations and claims,'' CACI spokeswoman Jody Brown said in an e-mailed statement yesterday. ``No CACI employee or former employee has been charged with any misconduct in connection with CACI's interrogation work in Iraq.'' A representative for L3 wasn't immediately available.
