Cable & Computer Technology v. Lockheed Martin (Unfair Business Practices)

Lockheed Sanders and Lockheed Martin Federal Systems paid damages related to bidding for a Boeing contract for breach of contract (in a teaming agreement with Cable & Computer Technology) and violating Unfair Business Practices and the Cartwright Act. “A jury has determined that Sanders, a subsidiary of Lockheed, entered into a contract with CCT to team in making a bid to Boeing for the computer upgrade on the B-1B bomber project of the Air Force. That contract was no mere agreement to agree. It was found by the district court to have ‘no missing terms.’ In the course of the contract Sanders supplied information on CCT’s pricing to Owego, another Lockheed subsidiary also bidding on the Boeing project. Less than two weeks before the bid was due, Sanders broke its contract with CCT, leaving it without a partner or time to find one.” See 2002 U.S. App. LEXIS 24501
