A federal appeals court dismissed a lawsuit against two
U.S. defense contractors by Iraqi torture victims, saying the companies
had immunity as government contractors.
The lawsuit was filed in 2004 on behalf of Iraqi nationals who say
they or their relatives had been tortured or mistreated while detained
by the U.S. military at the Abu Ghraib prison.
The plaintiffs sued CACI International Inc, which provided
interrogators at Abu Ghraib, and L-3 Communications Holdings Inc's
Titan unit, which provided interpreters to the U.S. military.
