APPEAL STILL PENDING?:
SUMMARY:Four plaintiffs from Peru were brought to the United States on H-2A visas to work at John Peroulis & Sons Sheep, Inc. Upon arriving in Colorado, plaintiffs visas, passports, and other documentation were seized. Plaintiffs were given only the most sparse food provisions. They were denied medical care for substantial injuries incurred during their 17 hour/day agricultural labors. Plaintiffs were recruited by the defendants in 2009. The procedural process of the case is complicated. Initially brought as a civil case, the U.S. has sought to intervene in consideration of TVPRA criminal charges. Trial pending.
