Testimony Begins in Indian Worker-Trafficking Lawsuit Against Signal International
Jan.13.2015 — The Times-Picayune
This article covers the start of testimony for a human trafficking case in which five Indian workers took jobs at Signal International LLC with false promises of a green card and permanent residency in the United States, but instead endured harsh living conditions and crushing debts to pay recruiters. New York-based attorneys, Alan Howard, Hugh Sandler, Amal Bouhabib, and Chiemi Suzuki, are representing the five workers in this case. "When the workers got here, they didn't get what they were promised. They didn't get green cards. What they got was trapped,” said Howard. Additional coverage of this closely wanted case was reported in several national media outlets including, The Houston Chronicle, Politico, and Bloomberg/BNA's Daily Labor Report.
