(AP) — This Feb. 11, 2009 photo shows personal items belonging to residents of a former school near Atalissa, Iowa that housed 21 mentally disabled men while they worked at West Liberty Foods in West Liberty, Iowa until the state of Iowa closed down the facility.
The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission is suing Henry's Turkey Service, of Goldthwaite, Texas, on behalf of 32 former workers whom it housed and oversaw while they worked at West Liberty Foods. The commission is expected to seek unspecified compensatory and punitive damages against Henry's for allegedly subjecting the men to abuse that "created an atmosphere of fear and intimidation," court filings show.
