Slavery Reparations Gets Day in Court - September 27, 2006



















Oral
arguments in the landmark slavery reparations cases against
corporations will take place on September 27, 2006, 9:30 a.m., in the
7th Circuit Court of Appeals, at 219 South Dearborn Street in Chicago,
Illinois.

New York, NY (PRWEB) September
12, 2006 -- Oral arguments in the landmark slavery reparations cases
against corporations will take place on September 27, 2006, 9:30 a.m.,
in the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals, at 219 South Dearborn Street in
Chicago, Illinois.



The cases were filed by plaintiffs around the United States in 2002,
and consolidated in a Federal Court in Chicago, Illinois. Various
corporations are defendants including: JP Morgan Chase Manhattan Bank,
Bank of America, Aetna Inc., New York Life Insurance Company, and CSX
railway (see complete list below*).



Lead plaintiff in the case is Deadria Farmer-Paellmann, pioneer of the
Corporate Restitution Movement, who first exposed Aetna Inc. in 2000
for its role in writing life insurance policies on the lives of slaves
with slave-owners as the beneficiaries. Several state and local
"Slavery Era Disclosure Laws" have been passed supporting her effort to
learn the truth about corporate complicity in slavery, and secure
restitution to benefit descendants of enslaved Africans. Plaintiffs are
demanding that a humanitarian trust fund be created rather than
individual payments.



Farmer-Paellmann and other plaintiffs in the landmark cases will attend the court arguments:



When:

Wednesday, September 27, 2006 at 9:30 a.m.
