Supreme Court Refuses to Hear Blackwater Suit


On February 26, 2007, the United States Supreme Court declined to hear the wrongful death case against the North Carolina private security firm Blackwater Security Consulting, LLC filed by the estates of four of its employees killed in Iraq in 2004.  The lawsuit alleges that the firm failed to provide proper equipment for the men.

While I haven’t yet read any of the court pleadings, my guess is that Blackwater is concerned that it won’t get a fair trial in North Carolina.
