COVID-19 Summary: This is a class action lawsuit over labor conditions in the Adelanto Detention Center. The plaintiffs filed a motion for a temporary restraining order on April 6, 2020, requesting relief from work for class members, or adequate protective clothing, antiseptic supplies, and testing, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. The judge denied the motion for temporary restraining order on April 22. The plaintiffs moved for partial summary judgment on December 21, 2020, and the defendants cross moved for summary judgment and for a hearing to decertify the class. In January 2020, the court denied the defendants' motion and granted summary judgment for the plaintiffs as to the claims arising under California's minimum wage and unfair competition laws. The case is stayed pending a Ninth Circuit appeal in Nwauzor v. The GEO Group Inc and trial was set for July 12, 2022.


On December 19, 2017, an immigrant previously detained from 2012 through 2015 at the Adelanto Detention Center, a civil immigration detention facility, filed this putative class action in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California. The plaintiff sued GEO Group (GEO), a private company that owned and operated the Adelanto Facility for profit, under the Trafficking Victim Protection Act and California Minimum Wage Law. The plaintiff, represented by private counsel, sought monetary, declaratory, and injunctive relief, claiming violations of the Trafficking Victims Protection Act and California state law. Specifically, the plaintiff alleged that GEO maintained a practice of wage theft, unjust enrichment, and forced labor. The plaintiff alleged that GEO used detainee labor to maximize its own profits, paying detainees just $1 per day to maintain and operate the facility. Because Adelanto Facility had a practice of withholding necessary care to ensure a supply of labor, the plaintiff alleged that the labor was involuntary because detainees were forced to work in order to buy basic necessities that GEO did not provide.

On February 16, 2018, the defendants moved to dismiss the claim, alleging that the plaintiff had failed to state a claim upon which relief could be granted. The plaintiffs submitted a first amended complaint on July 6, 2018 with no significant deviations from their original complaint. The defendants moved to dismiss the amended complaint on July 20, 2018. The plaintiffs submitted a second amended complaint on December 24, 2018, adding a plaintiff. On September 16, 2019, the plaintiffs filed a third amended complaint, adding plaintiffs, a claim of forced and attempted forced labor, and a claim that the defendant’s counterclaims were a form of retaliation.

In its counterclaims, the defendants claimed that if the plaintiffs prevailed then the defendants would be entitled to all costs and expenses in excess of the $1.00 daily rate paid to them associated with detention because otherwise plaintiffs would be unjustly enriched. This prompted the plaintiff to file an additional counterclaim, alleging that the defendant’s counterclaim was a form of retaliation against the plaintiffs. On November 30, 2018, the court issued an order granting a stipulation to dismiss with prejudice the defendant’s first counterclaim. In response, the defendants filed an additional counterclaim seeking declaratory relief on December 19, 2018. Both parties continued to file counterclaims against one another: the plaintiffs claimed that the defendant’s counterclaims were a form of retaliation; and the defendant sought declaratory relief that no employment relationship existed between GEO and the detainees who participated in the Voluntary Work Program.

On September 27, 2019, the plaintiffs filed a motion to certify a class of “all civil immigration detainees who performed work for GEO at the Adelanto Detention Center in the Work Program since GEO assumed responsibility for the Facility in May 2011.” On November 26, 2019, Judge Jesus G. Bernal granted plaintiffs' motion to certify this class.

On April 6, 2020, the plaintiffs filed a motion for a temporary restraining order that would direct GEO to either (1) halt the use of class members in the provision of work or services under the work program, or (2) protect class members by providing protective clothing, antiseptic supplies, and testing for COVID-19. The plaintiffs simultaneously filed a motion for expedited discovery for their requests that pertained to their motion. Following oral argument, on April 22, the judge denied the plaintiffs' application for a temporary restraining order.

Relatively little happened over the summer of 2020. The parties engaged in apparently contentious litigation over discovery, with the defendants requesting to reopen discovery from February of 2021 to June of 2021. On November 19, 2020, the parties attended a conference regarding the continued discovery dispute and following conversation between the parties, a hearing was scheduled for the following week.

The plaintiffs moved for partial summary judgment on December 21, 2020, requesting that the court find the defendant liable for wage theft, unjust enrichment, and unfair competition; reject the defendants' affirmative defenses, and dismiss defendants' conditional counterclaim for declaratory relief. The defendants filed a cross motion for summary judgment and for a hearing to decertify the class.

On January 25, 2022, Judge Bernal granted the plaintiffs' motion for summary judgment with regard to their claims that GEO Group violated California's Minimum Wage and Unfair Competition laws. The court found that GEO’s control over detainees' wages, hours, and working conditions was sufficient to establish them as an employer. Since it was undisputed that GEO paid detainees $1 per day, regardless of hours worked, the plaintiffs had successfully established a violation of California's minimum wage law. These facts also established a violation of California's unfair competition law, which defined “unfair competition” 
as “any unlawful, unfair or fraudulent business act or practice . . . " Cal. Bus. & Prof. Code § 17200.

The court concluded that there were genuine issues of material fact as to the plaintiffs' unjust enrichment and forced labor claims. The court dismissed the defendants' assertion of three affirmative defenses: derivative sovereign immunity, preemption, and lack of standing to seek injunctive relief, finding that:

  • GEO Group had discretion to pay detainees more than $1/day;
  • GEO Group had failed to show why compliance with both state and federal regulations was impossible; and
  • at least some of the named plaintiffs had standing to seek injunctive relief.

One month later, the defendants moved to stay the case pending a Ninth Circuit appeal in a similar case, Nwauzor v. The GEO Group, Inc. The court granted this motion; the case is stayed but ongoing.
