Jul. 14, 2011 - A current worker and a former employee of the security contractor previously known as Blackwater have filed a whistleblower lawsuit against the company, the second such suit filed against the firm, according to documents unsealed Thursday.
The lawsuit in U.S. District Court alleges that Blackwater, now known as Xe, overbilled the government for work protecting State Department employees in Iraq and Afghanistan. Part of the alleged fraud included billing for sniper services from individuals who were not properly qualified.
Specifically, the lawsuit alleges that Blackwater billed the State Department for sniper services from one individual who sat behind a desk. In at least one other case, the company allegedly billed for services provided by a marksman who had failed a required drug test.
A spokesman for Moyock, N.C.-based Xe declined comment Thursday, citing the pending legal action. The company has denied similar allegations in the past.
Court papers do not spell out exactly how much the State Department allegedly overpaid for Blackwater's services. The whistleblowers' lawyer, Susan Burke, declined comment Thursday. The two plaintiffs, Lyle Beauchamp of Musselshell, Mont., and Warren Shepherd of Springfield, Mo., also declined comment. read more>>>
