Suit accuses GE of covering up defects at aircraft engine plant
2 December 2004

“A USD64.4 million whistleblower lawsuit accuses General Electric Co. of covering up defects during production of jet engine blades. The suit by a former quality-control engineer claims that the defects could cause catastrophic failures in commercial and military aircraft. She contends that GE knew of the problem but continued to ship defective blades because correcting the process would have slowed manufacturing. GE called the claims baseless.” (AP)
