Boeing Company Settles False Claims Act Suit for $2 Million
The Boeing Company has agreed to pay $2 million to resolve claims that the company overbilled the government from 2002 to 2005 for work done at a San Antonio Plant. According to the suit, brought under the qui tam provisions of the False Claims Act, Boeing inflated its estimates for the number of hours required to do non-routine repairs and maintenance on the Air Force KC-135 tankers. The suit also alleged that the company manipulated its billing records to inflate the number of workers that maintained the Air Force tankers. The whistleblower who exposed the fraudulent billing practices is entitled to a share of 15 percent to 30 percent of the $2 million settlement.
