Former Oregon Gubernatorial Candidate Held Illegal Immigrants as Forced Labor, Lawsuit Alleges

Former gubernatorial candidate William Ames Curtright put an undocumented family to forced labor under threat of deportation, the family's father claims in Federal Court.

Trinidad Zavala sued Curtright and his company, Ames Research Laboratories. Zavala claims Curtright hired him knowing he was undocumented, fired him during his campaign for fear of exposure, then rehired him and made his family work around the clock taking care of Curtright's sick mother.
