Carmichael v. Kellogg, Brown & Root Serv., Inc., No. 08-14487

By FindLaw Staff on June 30, 2009 6:12 PM

In a negligence suit arising out of an accident in which Plaintiff's husband was injured while serving in Iraq, the dismissal of the complaint is affirmed where the political question doctrine barred the suit because adjudicating Plaintiff's claims would require extensive reexamination and second-guessing of many sensitive judgments surrounding the conduct of a military convoy in war time.
