IPI hires more lawyers to defend against forced labor allegations

Imperial Pacific International has hired two new lawyers, former NMI Bar president Sean E. Frink and Catherine J. Cachero of the Marianas Legal Strategy Group, to defend the company against a former contractor and subcontractor.

These new lawyers will join Kelley Butcher, who has previously been representing IPI in this case.

The plaintiffs, who are all Chinese nationals, allege that IPI violated the CNMI Anti-Trafficking Act by forcing them to work long hours below minimum wage and under extremely dangerous conditions at the Garapan casino-resort worksite.

IPI claims that the workers have no legitimate financial claims to make because they illegally entered the CNMI to work.
