Possible claim against Blackwater for wrongful death of member of the army
UPDATED 11/11/10 Yesterday's 60 Minutes show featured a segment on a claim filed by an army widow against Blackwater alleging negligence in managing and piloting a flight in which her husband was killed in Afghanistan. The military contractor argued it was covered by government immunity before eventually settling. The segment was available in full in the CBS website (and there are links to it) but it appears that it was removed and the links are not working. However, you can still read the full story (4 pages) which summarizes the 60 Minutes program and access more information by going here.
