Isley, et al. v. Lockheed Martin (Mischarging, Retaliation)

Kathy Isley, a former administrative assistant at Lockheed Martin, and Mark Wood, a former medical director at Lockheed, alleged the company improperly billed the federal government for employees’ work hours. They alleged that Lockheed’s timekeeping software (the Salary Time & Attendance Recording System, or “STARS”) caused overstatements of actual labor hours and overhead reported to the government on military aircraft projects including the F-22 Raptor, the P3 Orion, the C-130 Hercules, the C-5 Galaxy, the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter, and the F-16 Fighting Falcon. Isley and Wood claimed the company billed the government at least $6 million in fraudulent labor charges. Isley and Wood also alleged whistleblower retaliation. The parties settled the lawsuit in August 2013.
