SJ [San Jose] Aviation Firm Faces Rendition Aid Lawsuit [USA]

Five men who claim they were tortured in overseas prisons after being sent there by the CIA will ask a U.S. appeals court in San Francisco on Monday to reinstate their lawsuit against a San Jose aviation company. The lawsuit claims that Jeppesen Dataplan Inc. of San Jose, a subsidiary of Boeing Co., violated international human rights law by knowingly providing flight plans and other logistical support for the CIA plane flights that took them to overseas sites where they were allegedly tortured while being interrogated.
