A federal judge in Iowa City says Henry’s Turkey Service does not have to pay hundreds of millions of dollars to 32 mentally disabled workers.

Earlier this month a federal jury determined that Henry’s violated the Americans with Disabilities Act. It found the company stole wages and forced them to live in a rundown bunkhouse in Atalissa.

Monday’s ruling reduces the payments to less than $2 million.

That means each former worker will get about $50,000 instead of the expected $7 million.

The judge reduced the payment due to a law that caps damages.
