Operation Underground Railroad training left a woman’s eye socket shattered, a lawsuit against founder Tim Ballard and OUR alleges
A woman from Virginia is suing Tim Ballard and Operation Underground Railroad (OUR) after sustaining a serious injury at their gym in Draper, Utah. The incident occurred when two operators fell on her head, causing a lingering injury. The woman, Jordana Bree Righter, a former Marine, was training at OUR’s gym for a potential rescue operation when the accident happened.
The lawsuit alleges that Ballard, the founder of OUR, refused to call an ambulance to avoid any record of the injury occurring. Righter had to undergo surgery to repair her shattered eye socket and still experiences double vision, swelling, headaches, brain fog, and neck soreness.
The lawsuit also reveals disturbing details about the organization’s operations, including claims of haphazard preparation, poor organization, and inappropriate behavior during operations. Previous lawsuits have been filed against Ballard and OUR, accusing him of manipulating and coercing women into engaging in various sexual situations under the guise of child rescue missions.
Ballard has denied these allegations, but at least one of the women has gone to law enforcement, resulting in an active investigation.
This lawsuit adds to the controversy surrounding Operation Underground Railroad, which, despite its mission to combat child trafficking, is now facing serious allegations of negligence and misconduct. This has raised concerns about the organization’s credibility and ethical practices, casting a shadow on its efforts to combat an important global issue.
