Sallyport Global Holdings filed a defamation lawsuit against two former employees who made false and misleading statements to the Associated Press about the company’s operations at Balad Air Force Base in Iraq. The lawsuit claims the statements harmed Sallyport’s reputation and the company has notified the employees that it would not pursue the lawsuit if they issue a retraction on the public record.

According to the lawsuit, shortly after employees Robert Cole and Kristie King were terminated for inadequate performance, they made a number of false allegations about Sallyport, including that the company was involved in a sex trafficking ring and had concealed information about security breaches from the U.S. government. The complaint shows that internal reports by King and Cole contradicted the claims they made in the news article. The lawsuit seeks damages against Cole and King for defamation and breach of contract.

Two former Torres contractors can proceed in part with their lawsuit against their employer, who allegedly terminated them after one filed and another assisted with a workers compensation claim, the U.S. District Appeals Court for the District of Columbia ruled Friday.

According to the lawsuit, David Sickle and Matthew Elliott were working in Baghdad, Iraq, for Torres Advanced Enterprise Solutions L.L.C. when Elliott injured his back while stacking sandbags. Sickle, a base medic, treated Elliott several times and urged him to seek treatment in the United States, which he eventually did.

Elliott filed a workers compensation claim and was fired one week before he was to return to the base in Iraq to fulfill his contract obligation with Torres. According to court records, when Sickle refused to recant his testimony in support of Elliott’s claim, Torres Solutions also terminated Sickle’s contract outside of the contractual 30-day notice.
