Halliburton not in charge of war effort, court decides.



A federal judge in Texas has dismissed a lawsuit against Halliburton Co. brought by survivors of those killed when a fuel convoy was assaulted by insurgents outside Baghdad in April 2004.

The suit had claimed Halliburton bore responsibility because the company knew the proposed route was a dangerous one. U.S. District Judge Gray H. Miller agreed with Halliburton that the Army had sent the convoy, and that it was not a court's place to second-guess the Army's decision.

Here's a link to the Washington Post story.
