Whistleblower Lawsuit Against Lockheed Martin To Go Forward
A whistleblower suit claiming that government defense contractor Lockheed Martin defrauded the federal government by installing defective software on the F-35 aircraft will go forward after all, a federal district court judge has ruled. The whistleblower lawsuit filed in 2006 under the False Claims Act alleges that Lockheed Martin installed the software in the F-35s without following the government's or industry standards.
The federal False Claims Act allows whistleblowers to recover 15-25% of the monies recovered from a government contractor that defrauded the federal government. If you are aware of government contract fraud, contact Lexington, Kentucky whistleblower lawyer Robert Abell at 859-254-7076.
