APPELLATE OPINION CITATION:
HOLDING OF APPEALS COURT:
APPEAL STILL PENDING?:
SUMMARY:Plaintiffs worked for Defendants in Kuwait--that they worked long hours for very little pay.  In February 2005, they were brought to the US Embassy and told to lie in order to get a visa to travel to the US with the Defendants.  During their employment, they allege they were abused and threatened, and did not have access to their passports.

The claims against Kuwait were dismissed because Plaintiffs did not properly serve the nation under the Foreign Service Immunity Act.

The claims against the individual Defendants were dismissed because Defendants were protected by diplomatic immunity.
