Ex-Lockheed engineer sues Lockheed for F-22 stealth fraud

Lockheed Martin has been sued by a former engineer who claims the company knowingly supplied defective stealth coatings for the F-22, according to the legal document posted below. I’m following up with the former engineer’s attorney and Lockheed Martin for further comment.

[UPDATE 1: The lawsuit was filed by the attorney for Deepwater whistleblower Michael DeKort, who writes on CGreport.com that he helped Darrol Olsen file the lawsuit about the F-22.]

[UPDATE 2: I should note that Darrol Olsen and the attorney are seeking "all appropriate" damages. According to the whistleblower statute, that includes re-instatement and restored seniority, two times the amount of back pay lost plus interest and compensation for attorney's fees. Olsen says in the lawsuit he was dismissed by Lockheed in 1999 for "failure to follow instructions".]

[UPDATE 3: Olsen's attorney is traveling in Europe. I am holding off on a news story until I can speak with him. Check for updates here either later tonight or early tomorrow. So far, Lockheed Martin has no comment.]

[UPDATE 4: Click here to read Flight’s news story. The document shown below is a draft copy of a lawsuit expected to be filed later this week. It was posted prematurely on the web by a consultant to Darrol Olsen’s lawyer, Samuel Boyd.

    Coincidentally, today at work I had a conversation with a materials expert on a past LO program. She told me this was nothing new to her, as she was brought in to defend her company against many similar claims. Based upon our discussion, and without further elaboration because I have no intent of assisting any ambulance chasers, I predict the ‘former engineer’ will lose.

    That is a very interesting post, Patents are needed for all new technology. If you come up with something be sure to get a patent on it or you may just have your technology copied.The Visto Philosophy mimics The Real Networks Philosophy… “When you can’t sell your products on your own, just sue anyone else that does the job better.”

    My coder is trying to convince me to move to .net from
    PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on a number of websites for about a year and am anxious about
    switching to another platform. I have heard great things about blogengine.net.
    Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content into it?
    Any kind of help would be really appreciated!
