Family of Private Military Contractor Sues Employer

Posted By The Carlson Law Firm || 7-Mar-2012

The family of a former marine is suing private military contractor accident DynCorp after, they claimed, the contracting company tried to cover up the details associated with a drunken shooting accident that killed the young man.

The former marine, 25-year-old Jason Pope was shot to death when a fellow private military contractor, 27-year-old Kyle Palmer, shot him by accident while playing with a 9-millimeter Glock-19 handgun.

Palmer was reportedly extremely intoxicated at the time of the private military contractor accident, authorities have said.

Following the accident, Palmer received prison time and was ordered to pay as much as $6,000 in restitution.

Despite the details emerging regarding the accident, the family claims that private military contractor, DynCorp, claimed Pope shot himself in a drunken stooper.

Despite accusation made by the civilian contracting company, an autopsy performed on Pope revealed that he had no alcohol in his system at the time of the shooting accident.

Although the saga surrounding the tragic death of the former marine is not over, the accusations, claims, and statements have caused some to question to the reliability of such large companies in the face of wartime tragedies.
