Ex-KBR worker presses claim of rape in Iraq - Attorneys for each side offer differing versions of incident in 2007

On the morning after Jamie Leigh Jones says she was raped by several Kellogg Brown and Root co-workers in Iraq six years ago, she woke up naked and groggy with a man in her bunk, her lawyer said Tuesday. Jones' lawyer, Todd Kelly, delivered opening arguments in the federal lawsuit she filed in May 2007 against her former employer and others. According to court documents, Jones claims she was drugged and raped by several KBR firefighters after drinking with them. But Andrew McKinney, representing Charles Boartz, the only one of Jones' alleged attackers who is named in the suit, said her story has changed over time. Attorney Joanne Vorpahl said in her opening arguments that, while the suit has been an "incredibly unfortunate" experience for KBR, the company welcomes the opportunity to clear its name. "We are not who she says we are, and she's not who she claims," Vorpahl said. [also refers to Halliburton]
