A worker was subjected to verbal and physical abuse at a Mexican plant of an American company. He sued for harassment. A district court tossed out the suit, saying the company wasn't covered by Title VII because it had fewer than 15 workers. But a federal appeals court reinstated it, saying foreign workers of U.S.-controlled companies that operate on foreign soil count toward Title VII's 15-employee minimum. (Kang v. U. Lim America Inc., No. 00-55583, 9th Cir., 2002)
