I was sending my job applications to companies to some companies in US. Almost each of them was asking for US work permit. I'm an Indian.

I was applying for jobs which offers relocation and visa sponsorship.

I took the question as this Do you have any legal suit filed against you which prevent you from working in US?

So I answered as not applicable and YES, I have a work permit

Is there some special permit which I have to take to apply to those kind of companies?

This has nothing to do with a lawsuit.

Almost certainly the US companies were asking if you are able to work in the US without being sponsored.

You should have answered No.

    When you aren't sure what a question means, the first step should usually be to ask the questioner to clarify... or to provide an answer that starts with. "I'm not sure, but you seem to be asking..." – keshlam Nov 3 '15 at 19:43
