U.S. Supreme Court Rejects Appeals Filed by KBR Attempting to Shirk Liability For Harm Caused To U.S. and British Soldiers In Iraq and Afghanistan

The Supreme Court last Tuesday declined petition for certiorari involving three appeals filed by military contractor Kellogg, Brown, and Root (“KBR”). KBR claimed the three lawsuits against them on behalf of injured servicemen should be thrown out because KBR was operating as an extension of the U.S. military in Iraq and Afghanistan at the time. The High Court denied review and left intact a group of federal appeals court rulings allowing the lawsuits against KBR – including the Burn Pit multi district litigation – to go forward.

Court Rejects Appeal that injured offshore worker awarded “too much”

The First Court of Appeals of Texas this week issued an opinion (http://www.search.txcourts.gov/SearchMedia.aspx?MediaVersionID=2bb3591e-accb-4299-bce1-7766ff273147&coa=coa01&DT=Opinion&MediaID=240869e8-71b1-4845-903f-339f405dca80) affirming a jury verdict for $8.5 million for Willie “David” Williams, a mechanic injured onboard Diamond Offshore’s drilling rig OCEAN LEXINGTON working offshore Egypt in 2008. Mr. Williams’s lawsuit included claims under the Jones Act, doctrine of unseaworthiness, and general maritime law. David Williams sustained disabling injuries to his spine when forced to make rushed emergency repairs to the rig’s drilling “elevators”. Diamond Offshore complained that the jury’s award, which included $3.4 million for future pain and suffering associated with David’s injuries and their ongoing impacts for the rest of his life, was excessive, although this amount is still less than the salary for a single year for Diamond Offshore’s CEO (http://insiders.morningstar.com/trading/executive-compensation.action?t=DO).
