TRMS has aired many a story about KBR and the electrocutions they are accused of causing with shoddy workmanship. Yesterday, May 1st, a federal judge denied an appeal request by Kellogg, Brown & Root to appeal over a lawsuit which accuses the company of negligent homicide in the electrocution death of a U.S. soldier, Sgt Ryan Maseth. (above)
“KBR filed a motion with U.S. District Judge Nora Barry Fischer asking her to amend a March order that will allow the case to move forward; the order prevented an appeal during the course of the case,” reported the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “The contractor wanted her to change that order to allow it to appeal her decision on a motion for dismissal to the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.”
Now, I don't speak lawyer, but I do understand "Kellogg, Brown & Root" and "denied." Granted, it's usually in the form of "KBR denied any wrongdoing." To any one who does speak lawyer: I would like to understand this whole "appeal during the course of the case" business. I do know that a few articles said that Judge Fischer was "reaffirming" a previous decision. Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?
But anyway, KBR loses at least one to The Good Guys.
