Abstract The SPLC’s $14 million verdict against the company this year led to a settlement of 11 remaining suits.

A marine services company that reached a $20 million settlement agreement earlier this year to resolve labor trafficking lawsuits brought on behalf of hundreds of former Indian guest workers has issued an unprecedented apology as part of the agreement.

Signal International acknowledged it was “wrong in failing to ensure that the guest workers were treated with the respect and dignity they deserved” as they worked for the company repairing damaged oil rigs and related Gulf Coast facilities in the aftermath of hurricanes Katrina and Rita.
