KBR/Halliburton Withdraws Cert. Petition

Post  JoeC (McGruff) on Thu Mar 25, 2010 2:09 am

In early February KBR/Halliburton had filed "petition for writ of certiorari" in the Jones case, which, involved allegations by employee Jamie Leigh Jones that she was drugged and raped by several of her coworkers in her quarters in Iraq. This gave rise to the Franken amendment in the 2010 defense appropriation bill.

According to Scotusblog, KBR has now withdrawn that petition.

A must read for anyone interested in putting workplace issues backing the courts and out of the hands of arbitrators under Title VII.
