Military supplier to pay $11M over whistleblower claims
LOS ANGELES (AP) — A Southern California company will pay the U.S. government $11million to settle allegations that it sold electrical connectors to the military that lacked proper testing or had failed tests.
The government announced Tuesday that ITT Cannon also agreed to follow strict manufacturing and testing protocols.
ITT didn’t acknowledge any liability, however.
The settlement resolves allegations filed in a whistleblower lawsuit by the former regional quality manager at ITT’s Santa Ana facility.
Investigators from the Air Force, Coast Guard, Navy and NASA took part in the case.
