Jamie Leigh Jones Trial Against KBR Begins in Houston

Trial began on Monday, June 13, 2011, in the case of Jamie Leigh Jones, a former employee of KBR, who alleges she was assaulted and raped by co-workers in Iraq. Jones, who was 20 at the time, has alleged that after the assault, she was confined by KBR security until the intervention of U.S. Representative Ted Poe (R-Tex.).

Jones’s trial in US District Court comes after the Fifth Circuit ruled against KBR, finding that Jones’s employment contract did not require her claims to be arbitrated. KBR appealed that ruling to the Supreme Court, which declined to consider the case.

Doyle Raizner LLP represents persons injured by the negligence and/or wrongdoing of military contractors. The firm is currently engaged in litigation against KBR on behalf of members of the US National Guard and the British Royal Air Force.
