Four Iraqi men say they are suing US military contractors for torturing them while they were detained at the Abu Ghraib prison near Baghdad.
The men, who were all released without charge, have brought separate lawsuits in four US courts.
One of the men said he was beaten, threatened with dogs and given electric shocks during four years at the prison.
CACI International, one of two companies named in the lawsuits, dismissed the claims as "baseless".
Three civilians, all said to be former employees of the two contractors, CACI and L-3 Communications Corp, have also been named in the cases.
