A wrongful death action against military contractor Blackwater can proceed under a ruling issued by a state judge. The suit was brought by the families of four contractors who allege that Blackwater did not provide proper equipment or personnel. To date, the litigation is focused on the proper court for the proceeding and whether the matter should be stayed based on Blackwater's claim that it is an extension of the military.
I previously noted the lawsuit, focusing more on the information-gathering aspects of it.
