Judge Rules that Jamie Leigh Jones Must Pay Halliburton/KBR Court Costs


As the Wall Street Journal reports, a federal judge in Houston has ordered claimant Jamie Leigh Jones to pay the court costs (nearly $150,000) for suing her former employer Halliburton/KBR. The judge, however, refused to award Halliburton/KBR the attorney’s fees (of over $2 million) the company recently requested. “The fact that Jones presented prima facie claims of sexual harassment and hostile work environment highlights the impropriety of an award of attorneys’ fees in this case,” the judge wrote, concluding that her case was not frivolous.
