KBR v. Jamie Leigh Jones – US Supreme Court Petition

The blogosphere is all a-buzz about how KBR has trashed rape victim Jamie Jones in their latest and lowest legal maneuver to suppress Jamie’s right to address this issue in court. KBR would insist Jamie address the crime of rape behind the closed doors of some dark dank back room where KBR’s secret arbitration hearings are allegedly held

Latoya Peterson at Jezebel.com wrote an awesome article entitled KBR Claims Crime Was “Distinct Risk” In Jamie Leigh Jones Case

The only thing I have to add to Latoya’s article is the actual 188 page Petition KBR filed with the US Supreme Court. KBR et al v Jamie Leigh Jones this is a good size document so give it a few extra seconds to load.

I find reading legal documents about as exciting as watching paint dry, so I haven’t read it all the way through. Those who have read it in it’s entirety are advising readers pay close attention to the footnotes.

I have to say KBR must be very desperate or insanely arrogant or both to humiliate the victim of a sexual assault in a public forum.

    Halliburton drops high court appeal in rape case

    Associated Press – March 22, 2010 4:05 PM ET

    HOUSTON (AP) – Halliburton Co. and KBR have withdrawn an appeal asking the Supreme Court to block the trial of a former military contractor from Texas who says she was raped by co-workers in Iraq.

    Halliburton confirmed Monday that the appeal was withdrawn, but wouldn’t elaborate.

    Jamie Leigh Jones says she was raped while working for KBR in Baghdad in 2005. She later sued KBR and Halliburton, which split in 2007.

    Halliburton and KBR had argued that Jones’ case should be settled in arbitration as required by her contract. A lower court ruled it could go to trial, which is set for May 2011.

    The Associated Press usually doesn’t name people alleging sexual assault, but Jones’ identity has been broadcast in media reports and on her own Web site.
