Korea Supply Company v. Lockheed Martin (Bribery)

It is alleged that, in 1996, Loral Corporation (later acquired by Lockheed Martin and renamed Lockheed Martin Tactical Systems, Inc.) had given bribes and sexual favors to South Korean officials to win a contract for an aircraft radar system. The Korea Supply Company, which represented a competing bidder, sued Lockheed in California under the California Unfair Competition Law (“UCL”), claiming it lost out on a multi-million dollar commission due to Lockheed Martin’s alleged illegal conduct. After seven years of litigation, the parties settled the case. The terms of the settlement are confidential.
