Defective Aircraft Engines At Rolls Royce Cited by Whistleblower
A whistleblower lawsuit claims that Rolls Royce hid defects in aircraft engines that it provided to the United States government. A former safety manager at Rolls Royce, Thomas McArtor, claims he was terminated because he reported the problems. The suit was filed in federal court in Indianapolis and unsealed only recently.
The suit was filed under the False Claims Act, which allows the whistleblower to take 15-25% of the money that the government recovers.
