The complaint filed in Washington County Supreme Court charges trespass to land, trespass to chattel, conversion and negligence.

MAKS is joined as a plaintiff with two Indians who supervised the plant and unknown workers who endured the alleged early-morning raid in October 2009.

Pearson allegedly worked for EOD Technology Inc., which had a contract with the U.S. Air Force to supply temporary housing and office buildings at Bagram Airfield outside Kabul. MAKS says EODT subcontracted it to build the actual units.

EODT, based in suburban Knoxville, Tenn., provides security, munitions management, construction, logistics and disaster response “in austere and hostile environments,” according to its website. Founded by two retired U.S. Marines, it lists clients that include the U.S. Department of State, Department of Defense and Army Corps of Engineers, as well as defense contractor SAIC and oilfield services firm Halliburton.

Vet Says His Superiors Tried to Silence Him
William Dotinga – (Courthouse News) – Sacramento – September 19, 2012 – An Iraq war veteran claims in court that his superiors drugged and kidnapped him to keep him from telling the press about Abu Ghraib prison abuses – and that Saddam Hussein’s still-missing WMDs were made in the U.S.A.

Those are just two of the disturbing claims Frank Ford makes in a federal complaint, which mirrors a lawsuit he filed earlier this year in Sacramento Superior Court. His attorney said the state complaint will be dismissed soon, in favor of the federal case.

In the federal complaint, Ford accuses the defendants – including the California Army National Guard, the United States of America and fellow soldiers Victor Artiga, Merle Madera, Timothy Ryan and Thomas Pappas – of violating the Constitution, the Whistleblower Protection Act, and of torture, false imprisonment and medical malpractice.

Ford claims he served with the 203rd Military Intelligence Battalion, through the California Army National Guard, and went to Iraq as a counterintelligence noncommissioned officer in 2003. While in Iraq he was under the command of the 205th Military Intelligence Brigade. (Click HERE for article) (Click HERE for complaint)

    The UCMJ, specifly articles 91 and 92 MAKE junior enlisted OBEY the nco’S AND officers for any order given. I encountered Troops being forced to sleep with gas under their bunks while in Afghanistan and the UCMJ over rode the fire prevention regs set up by the army. If it can do that it can easly make sexual assault and Harrasment go over with out a hitch. Until this is MAJORLY overhauled you can pay lip service to the issue all you want it WILL NOT CHANGE

    Thanks Jennifer for your willingness to help make porsets. Let’s hope that others will want to help too or at least offer suggestions and then go from there. Also, I was glad to see that I am not the only one bring home that fast food trash.
