For those keeping track, we filed our amended complaint yesterday in Bixby, et al. v. KBR, Inc., et al., U.S. District Court Case No. 3:09-CV-632-PK (D. Or.). Here is a pdf of the amended complaint: plaintiffs-amended-complaint
The case arises out of exposure to sodium dichromate in Iraq in 2003. Oregon National Guard soldiers and others from Indiana, West Virginia, and the U.S. Army were exposed to toxic chemicals at the site while providing security for KBR workers.Sodium dichromate contains hexavalent chromium. It is extremely toxic.
In the meantime, we continue to receive calls and emails from current or former member of the Oregon National Guard who provided security at the Qarmat Ali facility. If you served there and are having health problems, feel free to contact me for more information about the lawsuit. It’s important that you understand that there are time limits on filing claims. If you qaulify to join the case and if you would like to pursue a claim, you must act to protect your rights.
