US Supreme Court Allows Burn Pit Disease Lawsuit to Go Forward

The US Supreme Court declined to hear the appeal of KBR.  Therefore, the case will remain active and will return to the US District Court for further action.

The case is a consolidated action under Federal Multi-District Litigation against government contractors Kellogg Brown & Root (KBR) and Halliburton for alleged harm to military personnel & other individuals caused by exposure to burn pits in Iraq and Afghanistan that were used to dispose of material including medical waste, plastics, paints and pesticides.
