Pompeo Quoted in Bloomberg Law on Boeing Co. Government Contract Lawsuit
Government Contracts and National Security partner Paul Pompeo was quoted in a Bloomberg Law article, “US Accounting Win Over Boeing Not ‘Bullet Proof,’ Attorney Says.” The story discusses the US Court of Federal Claims dismissal of a case between Boeing and the United States in which Boeing argues that the FAR provision applied by the government directly conflicts with the Cost Accounting Standards statute.
