Signal International, LLC Key Developments

The Southern Poverty Law Center Announces Five More Lawsuits on Behalf of 60 Workers Against Signal International, LLC

The Southern Poverty Law Center announced that five more lawsuits on behalf of 60 workers have been filed this week against Signal International, LLC, accusing the shipbuilder and its network of recruiters and labor brokers of trafficking 500 Indian guest workers to the United States and forcing them to work under barbaric conditions. The new lawsuits are part of an unprecedented effort by some of the nation's most prestigious law firms to prosecute, on a pro bono basis, multiple human trafficking lawsuits against Signal. In addition to the lawsuits filed this week, three law firms filed lawsuits on behalf of 83 guest workers in May, 2013. The lawsuits follow David v. Signal International LLC, which was filed by the SPLC in 2008 on behalf of 12 named plaintiffs and a class of Indian guest workers. After the court denied class certification for the lawsuit, the SPLC contacted more than half a dozen law firms, which enthusiastically agreed to represent individual guest workers for free. DLA Piper is suing Signal in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas on behalf of four guest workers. Equal Justice Center and University of Texas Law School Transnational Worker Rights Clinic are suing Signal in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas on behalf of 16 guest workers. Fredrikson & Byron P.A. is suing Signal in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas on behalf of 10 guest workers. McDermott Will and Emery is suing Signal in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Mississippi on behalf of two guest workers. Skadden Arps is suing Signal in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Mississippi on behalf of 28 guest workers. The lawsuits allege that Signal and its agents defrauded guest workers out of millions of dollars in exorbitant "recruitment fees" and falsely promised help in applying for and obtaining permanent U.S. residence. The guest workers sold family property and heirlooms, and incurred crippling debt, to each pay as much as $25,000 to Signal. Once these workers were lured to Signal's Pascagoula, Miss., and Orange, Texas, shipyards, they were forced to live in overcrowded, unsanitary and racially segregated labor camps. The living conditions not only endangered the guest workers' health and psychological well-being, but these workers were assigned the most dangerous and difficult jobs due to their race, ethnicity, religion and national origin. They also were threatened with financial ruin and deportation if they balked.
