Chicago Civil Rights Lawyer Mike Kanovitz on Suing Donald Rumsfeld (Part 1)

It's been a tough month for Donald Rumsfeld. First, a federal judge in D.C. ruled that an Army veteran may proceed with a civil suit against the former defense secretary for torture he claims he suffered when he was a translator in Iraq. A week later, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit in Chicago upheld a lower court's ruling that two American contractors may continue their lawsuit against Rumsfeld, claiming he's personally liable for torture they endured after they blew the whistle on corrupt practices taking place at an Iraqi-owned contractor where they were employed.
