Abu Ghraib Prisoner Mistreatment

Seventy-two Iraqis who had been detained at Abu Ghraib and other prisons in Iraq from 2003 through 2007 alleged that employees of several U.S. contractors, including L-3 Communications and L-3 Services, Inc. (later renamed Engility Corporation), either participated in, approved of, or condoned the mistreatment of prisoners. (The lawsuit was originally filed against Titan Corporation, which L-3 acquired in 2005.) In October 2012, Engility settled the lawsuit for $5.28 million.
