Alan Gross was distributing Internet equipment in Cuba for a U.S. development project; the project was illegal under Cuban law


 The United States and its contractor left a U.S. citizen to rot in a Cuban prison, failing to warn him that his U.S.-sponsored mission to distribute Internet equipment in Cuba is illegal, Alan Gross and his wife claim in court.

Alan Gross and his wife Judith sued Development Alternatives Inc. and the United States, in Federal Court.
