“Boeing is on the hook for $2.1 million after an Alabama federal jury concluded that the aerospace giant breached agreements with a now-defunct aircraft maintenance company to jointly bid on a $1.3 billion U.S. Air Force contract,” the article says.
“The jury awarded Alabama Aircraft Industries Inc., formerly known as Pemco, nearly $800,000 on Friday for what it found was a violation of a 2005 bidding agreement, and another $1.3 million for a violation of a nondisclosure agreement in which Boeing promised that it wouldn’t use proprietary information from Pemco for competitive purposes.”
