Nestle, Cargill Win Dismissal of Ex-Child Slaves' Lawsuit, Bloomberg News, March 10, 2017 - by Edvard Pettersson

On March 10, 2017, Judge Wilson issued an Order granting defendants' motion to dismiss. 

"Judge Wilson's decision, which states that business conduct such as the provision of unrestricted funds to those committing slavery cannot be illegal, directly contradicts not only international law but also the Ninth Circuit's prior decision in this case. The Ninth Circuit has made clear that knowingly contributing to the enslavement of others for profit is an international crime whether committed by individuals or corporations."

IRA will appeal.
