U.S. says KBR boosted cost of trailers for troops in Iraq

U.S. says KBR boosted cost of trailers for troops in Iraq 19 Nov 2012 The U.S. Justice Department said on Monday that it had sued [terrorists] KBR Inc, accusing the company and a Kuwaiti subcontractor of improperly charging the federal government for the costs of delivering and installing trailers for troops in Iraq. The filing of the lawsuit came days after the Justice Department dropped a similar but unrelated case over KBR's costs for private armed security in Iraq. Filed in the U.S. District Court in Rock Island, Illinois, the latest lawsuit alleges that KBR-hired subcontractor First Kuwaiti Trading Co inflated its crane, truck and driver costs and misrepresented delays on the installation of more than 2,250 trailers.
