Jamie Leigh Jones Loses Rape Case


A Houston jury rejected all of Jamie Leigh Jones’ claims today, including that she was raped by Charles Boartz and that she was defrauded by KBR.

Boartz had contended that the sex, which occurred in Iraq while Jones was blacked out, was consensual. KBR had denied creating a sexually hostile work environment, and it brought evidence that questioned Jones’ history of mental health issues and sexual assault accusations. Jones’ case became famous when taken up by members of Congress, who changed the law so that government contractors couldn’t force sexual harassment and assault disputes into arbitration rather than adjudicated through the justice system.
