Law360 — KBR assailed the discovery efforts of a group of soldiers in Maryland federal court Friday, arguing their motion to compel on already-set timelines is simply trying to pad the record of the multidistrict litigation, over hazardous wastes allegedly burned in open-air pits at military bases, with “frivolous” discovery process complaints.

The military contractor is doing everything in its power to meet an Aug. 31 deadline to hand over data on 30 persons of interest, or POIs, KBR said, arguing the process is complicated by data security issues with the government beyond its control and by the sheer amount of data involved: roughly 3 terabytes.

Recently, the Supreme Court found that lawsuits against the American contractor that operated the burn pits, KBR, could move forward. KBR had argued that it couldn’t be sued because it had operated the burn pits for the government. The Court issued no statement, but the lawsuits will go back to trial courts.

The high court denied a petition by the Houston-based company to consider arguments in cases that allege the contractor and former parent corporation, Halliburton, acted negligently while operating open-air burn pits in Iraq and Afghanistan and other facilities, resulting in death and illness of U.S. troops.
