Corning agrees to $5.65M settlement in whistleblower case.

Bloomberg News (3/8, Schoenberg) reports DOJ said in a statement Friday that Corning Inc. “agreed to pay $5.65 million to settle allegations that it overbilled the U.S. government for lab research products sold to federal agencies.” A whistleblower lawsuit alleged that “Corning’s life sciences division knowingly made false statements to the General Services Administration about its sales practices and discounts offered to other customers.” US Attorney Ronald Machen said that “tough choices” on spending mean that “government contractors need to understand that they will not get away with overbilling the taxpayer.”
