US Court Throws Out Colombians Suit Against Chiquita Brands International

A US appeals court on July 24, 2014 threw out a civil lawsuit by thousands of Colombians against Chiquita Brands International, whose funding of paramilitary groups allegedly cost the lives of their loved ones. Ruling that the matter falls outside the jurisdiction of US courts, a panel of the 11th US Circuit Court of Appeals, by two votes to one, declined to hear the case. Some 4,000 Colombians were seeking legal redress in the class action suit, saying the banana company shared the blame after their relatives were killed by the United Self-Defense Committees of Colombia, known by its acronym AUC. The company has admitted that between 1997 and 2004 it paid $1.7 million to the AUC and was compelled several years ago to pay a $25 million fine for having done so. The company has announced that it was a victim of extortion when it paid the monies to the group.
