MLA Scores Complete Victory for KBR in $55M Case

Last week, MLA achieved a complete victory for KBR in an important $55M case before the Armed Services Board of Contract Appeals (ASBCA). The case involved KBR’s contract to provide logistical support services—including feeding the troops—during the Iraq War from 2003 to 2006. The Government asserted that KBR and its subcontractors improperly used private security contractors (PSCs) in support of their work in Iraq and that the Government was not responsible for the costs allegedly associated with that use.

In 2013, a team composed of Herb Fenster, Ray Biagini, Jason Workmaster, Dan Russell, Alex Sarria, and John Sorrenti tried the case before the ASBCA for 24 days.
