CACI Receives Favorable Court Decision
U.S. Court of Appeals Refuses to Rehear Baseless Detainee Lawsuits
Arlington, VA, January 26, 2010 - CACI International Inc (NYSE:CACI) announced today that the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit has denied a petition for rehearing in two lawsuits alleging detainee abuse at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq filed against CACI in 2004. On September 11, 2009, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit had ruled in CACI's favor in the two lawsuits. The Iraqi plaintiffs then asked the court to rehear the appeals, which the court declined to do.
CACI President and Chief Executive Officer Paul Cofoni said, "From day one, CACI has rejected these outrageous allegations and vigorously fought to uphold the reputation of our fine company and dedicated people. This favorable court decision validates what we have communicated to the public and media for years: these lawsuits are malicious, baseless, and completely without merit. We have been steadfast in setting the record straight, and will continue to communicate the truth."
None of the Iraqi plaintiffs in these lawsuits even alleged that they had any contact with anyone affiliated with CACI. No CACI personnel appeared in any of the notorious photographs at Abu Ghraib, and no one affiliated with the company has been charged with any wrongdoing.
CACI did its work at Abu Ghraib prison with professionalism and integrity. We are proud of our performance in very difficult and dangerous conditions in a war zone. The Army was in need of help, and we provided qualified professionals who made valuable contributions to the war effort in Iraq. We assisted the Army in obtaining useful intelligence information that helped save the lives of American troops on the battlefield.
In April 2008, CACI released the book, Our Good Name, providing a true and factual accounting of CACI's involvement at Abu Ghraib. The thoroughly researched publication is based entirely on public documents, statements, on the record testimony before the Congress, courts martial testimony, and other reputable sources in the public record. Our Good Name is the definitive account of what we went through during the Abu Ghraib controversy and tells the American people about the real CACI – a company dedicated to helping our military and our country.
CACI's interrogation services in Iraq concluded in the Fall of 2005 when its contract with the Army expired. CACI has repeatedly stated it abhors and condemns the abuses that occurred at Abu Ghraib prison. The company does not condone, tolerate, or endorse any illegal behavior by any of its employees in any circumstances at any time.
