Rape Victim Loses Case Against KBR & Halliburton

On Friday, July 8, 2011, a Houston jury returned its verdict in Jamie Leigh Jones' case against KBR, Inc., Halliburton Co., and Charles Bortz. Jones is the former KBR employee that was allegedly drugged and raped by fellow employees while working in Iraq. The companies and Bortz denied all allegations of rape and a subsequent cover-up; Bortz admitted to having sex with Jones but said the sex was consensual. The jury returned a verdict in favor of the defendants on all counts.

Toxic Burn Pits

Every day thousands of tons of garbage are burned in "burn pits" at military installations across Iraq and Afghanistan. Houston based contractors KBR and Halliburton were contracted and paid by the U.S. government to properly dispose of waste products at specific U.S. bases. However, although both KBR and Halliburton agreed to follow all U.S. laws and U.S. Environmental Protection guidelines, many of these burn pits were constructed upwind from living quarters, allowing the toxic smoke and ash from these fires to settle like a haze on camps housing military personnel. Anything and everything is burned in these pits, including dead animals, asbestos insulation, paints, solvents, lithium batteries, plastics, and even trucks.
