Last month, a federal court hit 84 unrepresented former factory workers with a $2.2 million racketeering default judgment. Now, two attorneys have taken on the case pro bono and asked the court to vacate the judgment.
The workers had filed compensation claims for job-related injuries around the time the Passaic, N.J., plant where they worked was closing and laying off its employees in late 2002 and early 2003. Their employer, Bath Unlimited, subsequently sued them under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, claiming they conspired with their lawyers and doctors to file bogus claims.
