Offered without comment because Jesus, what could we possibly say?
A Canadian man acquitted last year of illegally stockpiling warheads at his counterterrorism training school is suing the Halliburton Co., claiming the defense company defrauded him by telling him he could legally buy the military explosives.
David Hudak's federal lawsuit, filed Oct. 13 in Albuquerque, also claims that Halliburton, its former Jet Research Center subsidiary and another military contractor, Tennessee-based Accurate Arms Co., sold thousands more of the warheads to others in similar transactions.
The companies should have paid to have the warheads destroyed, as required by their military contracts, the lawsuit contends.
In a statement, Houston-based Halliburton said the 10 years that have passed since the sale of the warheads make the case difficult to investigate.
