NMI Court said to grant default judgment in favor of 7 construction workers

The U.S. District Court for the NMI is set to grant the reconsideration for default judgment filed by the seven construction workers suing Imperial Pacific International (CNMI) LLC for alleged trafficking and forced labor.

According to Aaron Halegua, U.S. District Court for the NMI Chief Judge Ramona Manglona had said she will soon issue a default judgment in plaintiffs’ favor against IPI.

Halegua said that, as of Wednesday, the court has yet to schedule a hearing for the issuance of a default judgment because Manglona still needs to go through the plaintiff’s proposed damages and fees and decide the amounts.

However, Halegua said, the workers had requested over $11 million in compensatory and punitive damages for their forced labor claims.
