Law360 Reports on Armored Truck Whistleblower Case

Posted on June 13, 2014

Law360 reported on recent developments in a whistleblower lawsuit filed by Frank Skinner, a client of The Employment Law Group® law firm (TELG), against his former employer.

Mr. Skinner served as president of Armet Armored Vehicles, a defense contractor based in Florida. According to his complaint in the case — and also a separate criminal indictment — Armet and its owner William Whyte defrauded the U.S. government by delivering armored trucks that deliberately fell short of the protective standards Armet had promised in contracts worth more than $6 million.

Mr. Skinner, a former Marine, was the original informant in the U.S. government’s investigation of the defective trucks, which were intended for use in Iraq.

Law360 reported on the unsealing of Mr. Skinner’s complaint last year. Yesterday it gave an update on Armet and Mr. Whyte’s motions to dismiss the case, which came shortly after TELG helped to serve the complaint on Mr. Whyte at his multi-million dollar house in Toronto, Canada, where he apparently had traveled to avoid the consequences of his criminal indictment.

According to David Scher, a principal of TELG, Mr. Skinner will “vigorously oppose” the motions to dismiss.

Mr. Skinner is represented in the case, U.S. ex rel. Skinner v. Armet Armored Vehicles, Inc., by TELG and Waters & Kraus, LLP.
