A federal court judge said the former U.S. Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld can be sued personally by a U.S. military contractor who claims he was tortured while detained for nine months in a prison in Iraq.

The court did not disclose the name of the contractor who is a U.S. Army veteran 50-year-old. Lawyers call the contractor that the contractor was repeatedly tortured while detained in Camp Cropper, a U.S. military facility in Baghdad.

In its claim, the contractor was called Rumsfeld violated constitutional rights because of personal SCARA allow the use of interrogation techniques of torture and forbade him to get a fair trial.

Obama, who represents the government Rumsfeld argued that the former Secretary of Defense can not be sued personally when making decisions when serving as minister but Judge James Gwinn disagreed.
