U.S. Judge OKs Trial for Lawsuit Brought by Abu Ghraib Torture Survivors

HeadlineAug 02, 2023

A federal lawsuit brought by Iraqi torture survivors appears finally headed to trial after a federal judge refused to dismiss the case. The Iraqis are suing the U.S. military contractor CACI, which was hired to provide interrogation services at Abu Ghraib, an Iraqi prison where the men were tortured by U.S. guards. The lawsuit was first filed in 2008. Since then, CACI has attempted 18 times to have the case dismissed.
