We have written previously on the shocking conduct of KBR in Iraq. Now a retired Pittsburgh soldier, Glen Bootay, has joined dozens of others nationwide in suing the well-connected governmental contractor for exposure to a dangerous chemical while he guarded a water treatment plant in Iraq. As you will recall, KBR is the same firm that has also been sued for faulty systems that led 18 soldiers to be electrocuted in barracks during the Iraq war.
The Bootay lawsuit, filed in federal court, concerns exposure to sodium dichromate while the solider was deployed in 2003 at the water plant which KBR was hired to rebuild. Bootay, a 30-year-old, is disabled and takes up to 35 medicines because of the chemical exposure. KBR should settle his claim, all of the other claims that have been filed, and any others that are still out there.
