About the Case

The complaint filed by The Employment Law Group® law firm on behalf of the relators Kenneth Smith (a decorated former North Carolina police officer) and John Melson (a decorated former U.S. Marine and current Army National Guardsman) alleges that Chris Sullivan, executive vice president of Jorge Scientific, modeled and encouraged gross misconduct at the Kabul “Villa” where Jorge executives stationed the team, causing the relators to resign from their $250,000 a year jobs as security principal analysts and close protection specialists. The relators charge Jorge executives’ actions grossly compromised the U.S. mission and endangered the lives of Jorge employees, U.S. government and coalition personnel.
The relators say their case against Jorge is another telling example of circumstances, which ignite so-called “Green on Blue” violence in Afghanistan. This label, so visible in the news today, describes Afghanis attacking their American instructors, and soldiers who are seen as “Ugly Americans” flaunting local laws and customs.

The suit reports that Jorge executives routinely violated the company’s rule of conduct. For example, they indiscriminately fired weapons and possessed grenades (legally prohibited for government contractors), and drunken Jorge supervisors tossed live ammunition into house party bonfires causing the bullets to explode and destroy property. In one case, an errant bullet struck a Jorge employee near his eye and exploding bullets regularly found their way into the nearby civilian community causing Afghani civilian and military neighbors to complain – Jorge ignored those complaints. Jorge endangered the lives of the relators by failing to appreciate how such actions could make the Villa and the surrounding community a potential target for Al Qaeda, the Taliban and other anti-U.S. extremist groups.
