Judge denies KBR’s request for sanctions against soldiers’ lawyers

A federal judge Monday sided with lawyers for a set of Oregon National Guard soldiers and veterans, saying their lead lawyer didn’t violate the court’s gag order when he provided a testimonial for a jury consultant’s DVD.

The statements by Michael Doyle of the Houston law firm of Doyle Raizner “clearly were not in violation” of the court’s gag order, wrote Magistrate Judge Paul Papak. Further, he said, the jury consultant’s advertising “disclosed no information … not already in the public record.”

In December, KBR’s lawyers argued that Doyle’s words and statements made in the jury consultant’s advertising deserved to be penalized by the court.
