CACI almost finished with Abu Ghraib lawsuit

CACI International is just about finished with the lawsuit that alleged its employees abused of Abu Ghraib detainees, according to FedBiz Daily.

Judge Gerald Bruce Lee upheld the company’s motion to dismiss for lack of jurisdiction the claims made under the Alien Tort Statute.

The statute allows U.S. district courts to decide civil cases brought by foreigners claiming violations of international law, which was determined to not apply to actions committed in other countries, FedBiz Daily reported.

I don't get our header. The company was hardly cleared of alleged wrongdoing. Rather, the court said it had no jurisdiction. Those who made the serious charges against CACI can lodge suits in various places, including the Hague, if they wish. All it takes is time and money. The allgegations remain just that--neither proven nor disproven by what the court did. Make sense to you?
