the terms of a settlement between CCA and some former employees has been finalized. A few women who worked at the Crowley County CF in CO were sexually assaulted by their superiors. I wrote about this before (these are the same women who were forced to take dangerous shift assignments when they spoke out against the harassment/assault). They won $1.3 million. The only bad thing is that this was a settlement, which means CCA doesn't admit liability or fault in the decision. Otherwise, it's good to see some justice served.
