Iraq War Contractor Litigation – Lopez McHugh represents the families of nineteen civilian truck drivers, employees of Halliburton, who were killed in Iraq. These lawsuits had previously been dismissed by the District Court for the Southern District of Texas, but the Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit reversed that decision and remanded the cases for trial.
