A federal court has found United Technologies Corp. liable for more than $473 million in damages and penalties arising out of a contract to provide the Air Force with engines for F-15 and F-16 fighter aircraft from 1985 to 1990, the Justice Department said Thursday.
President Obama may have placed some limits on lobbyists serving in the White House, but he has had no problem continuing the timeworn Washington practice of doling out coveted diplomatic posts to big-money backers.
"It is vital that companies who do business with the government provide full and accurate information, and if they do not, they will pay the consequences," said Acting Assistant Attorney General Stuart Delery, who heads the Justice Department's Civil Division.
Mr. Delery said the district court awarded the government False Claims Act damages and penalties of $364 million, which is the highest recovery obtained by the government in a case tried under the act.
