Having realised that they were wrong to try and sue its former employee and Chief Technical Officer Jim Bonner using Federal RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organisations) laws, International Launch Services (ILS), the firm which markets commercial Proton rocket launches for its main parent firm Khrunichev, has refiled its legal action under different fraud laws as it attempts to recover funds allegedly defrauded by Bonner and his alleged accomplice Thomas Dwyer. Specifically, the pair are alleged to have taken ILS funds set sside for safety analysis by awarding contracts to two firms set up by themselves which did not actually do the work. Bonner was fired from the ILS firm last August.
