Justice Department to seek new indictment of Blackwater guards in Iraq shooting 25 Jul 2012 The Justice Department plans to bring a new indictment against four Blackwater Worldwide guards involved in a 2007 shooting that killed 17 Iraqis. U.S. District Judge Ricardo Urbina had thrown out the case in 2009, but an appeals court reinstated the charges last year. A Justice Department attorney told Judge Royce Lamberth on Wednesday that a special team will ensure that prosecutors working on the new indictment don’t have access to “privileged statements.” Prosecutors say they will seek a superseding indictment after gathering additional evidence.
