D.R. Horton is not responsible... Jorge was working for a SUBCONTRACTOR... Why not sue the sub-contractor? Because they don't have the deep pockets, that's why.

Horton could have easily avoided any culpability by insisting the subcontractor indemnify them against claims resulting from wrongdoing on the part of the subcontractor.

In a business rife with illegals I sure would.

The general has the insurance coverage and it held responsible since he hires the subs.

These guys had full knowledge of who is working on site. They deserve getting bitten for taking their shortcuts.

No indictments have been returned in the five-year probe
