Vice President Not Out of the Woods Yet: Judicial Watch Statement on Halliburton Lawsuit Developments
Monday September 8, 11:54 am ET
WASHINGTON, Sept. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Judicial Watch, the public interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption, said it would "carefully consider its next legal steps" in response to a federal court's decision to dismiss its shareholder lawsuit against Vice President Cheney and Halliburton for alleged fraud. Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton issued the following statement in response to the judge's decision:
"Judicial Watch has various legal options it can take to hold the Vice
President and Halliburton accountable for their alleged corporate fraud.
It is important that Halliburton, which has massive government contracts
(including for the rebuilding of Iraq), not get away with Enron-style
accounting tricks and alleged misdeeds. Mr. Cheney is certainly not out
of the woods yet."
Reportedly, the Securities and Exchange Commission continues to investigate Judicial Watch's allegations against Mr. Cheney and Halliburton.
