ILA Statement on Dismissal of ILA RICO case by Judge I. Leo Glasser

Nov 01, 2007, 01:00 ET from International Longshoremen's Association, AFL-CIO

    NEW YORK, Nov. 1 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The International
 Longshoremen's Association, AFL-CIO, is delighted that Judge I. Leo Glasser
 has dismissed the Government's civil RICO case. This case was based on
 outdated stereotypes of the ILA, was an insult to ILA members, and never
 should have been brought. While Judge Glasser has given the Government the
 right to file a new complaint, we hope that the Government will realize on
 reflection that the public interest is not served by further litigation.
