W&W’s lawsuit against the Central Intelligence Agency on behalf of Franklin “Frank” Richards was the subject of a recent Washington Post article by Joe Davidson. Read the article here.
Frank was a decorated member of the CIA’s Special Activities Division and was sent to “a Middle Eastern Country” to provide firearms training to a number of individuals. Frank contracted lead poisoning while conducting that training, because he was ordered by his superiors to provide the training in a unsuitable range that was heavily contaminated with lead dust — this despite the fact that there were many safer, and healthier alternatives.
As a result of the permanent and irreversible injuries suffered by Frank, he was medically retired by the CIA, and is now unemployable.
