Federal Judge Rejects Latest KBR/Halliburton Delay Attempt

By order entered November 2, 2010, in federal court in Houston, Texas United States District Judge Vanessa Gilmore denied KBR/Halliburton’s motion to enter a “Lone Pine Order”. KBR/Halliburton claimed that the US Army’s initial report completed in 2003 on the soldiers’ exposures at Qarmat Ali, relying primarily on information provided at the time by KBR/Halliburton personnel and post-clean up testing of the site, “proved” that the men onsite were not actually exposed to the tons of toxic chemical blowing in the wind at the site. If granted, KBR/Halliburton’s “Lone Pine Order” would have meant that the veterans should have to undergo a costly and lengthy “Lone Pine” process to document the exact exposures before KBR/Halliburton was required to release the full information in their files about assessments and findings conducted by their engineers at Qarmat Ali starting at least in April 2003 (otherwise known from the most recent testimony of KBR managers as a period of a collective KBR/Halliburton memory “black hole”). Judge Gilmore’s order summarily rejected this latest attempt to delay and block the veterans’ efforts to uncover the truth about Qarmat Ali.
