U.S. drops case against KBR over Iraq private security costs

U.S. drops case against KBR over Iraq private security costs 15 Nov 2012 The United States has dropped its case against the engineering and military contractor KBR Inc over the costs of KBR's private armed security in Iraq. U.S. District Judge Royce Lamberth, in an order posted on Thursday, granted the Justice Department's petition from Wednesday to have its lawsuit dismissed without prejudice, a move that would leave it free to possibly refile the case at a later date. The Justice Department had launched the lawsuit against the Houston-based company in April 2010 for alleged False Claims Act violations for impermissible security costs in billings to the U.S. Army from 2003 to 2006.
