Wrongful Death Suit Against KBR Dismissed
July 16, 2012
by: Andrew Schneider
U.S. District Judge Nora Barry Fischer ruled that KBR couldn’t be held liable for the death because military commanders — not the contractor — made decisions on where to house soldiers and whether buildings with substandard electrical systems were suitable or not.
Attorneys for Cheryl Maseth, the mother of Staff Sergeant Ryan Maseth, say they’ll appeal to the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.
All parties agree Maseth died in 2008, when an improperly grounded water pump electrified his shower water.
