Accuses government of misconduct.
Attorneys for Sholom Rubashkin and other former Agriprocessors managers filed a second motion to dismiss the case Thursday. Rubashkin and others are charged with more than 9,000 counts of child labor violations.
In the motion to dismiss, his attorney accuses the government of misconduct. The accusation is based on an Iowa Department of Labor investigation at Agriprocessor's prior to last year's immigration raid.
Rubashkin's attorney claims during that investigation, Rubashkin asked the state to identify and remove minors working at the plant but the state refused in order to further its immigration investigation.
