Hunt Consolidated v. Honeywell (Defective Engines)

It was reported that a Dallas jury found that Honeywell International committed fraud against Hunt Consolidated by not telling the company about certain defects in the Honeywell engines used in two of Hunt’s corporate Learjets. Hunt allegedly discovered during a preflight inspection that all of the blade retainers in the engines had broken off and caused secondary damage to an engine. Hunt argued that information about the defective blade retainers should have been included in a 2008 service bulletin Honeywell sent to customers. The jury reportedly awarded Hunt $1.4 million in damages.
