SUMMARY:

A Jordanian staffing company and a military contractor allegedly hired 13 Nepali citizens and led them to believe that they would be working either in luxury hotels in Jordan or in American camps in the United States.  Once in Jordan, Daoud required all the men to relinquish their passports and informed them for the first time 1) that they would, in fact, be working on a military base in Iraq and 2) that they would be receiving only three quarters the amount of money originally promised to them.  Daoud then transported the men into Iraq where, upon nearly the military base, they left them with insurgents posing as allies to the Americans.  The insurgents eventually shot eleven of the men and executed a twelfth.  The only surviving plaintiff, Mr. Gurung, was able to return to Nepal after 15 months.
