Judge Says He Did Not Disclose A Reprimand Letter Dealing
With Sexual Affair With A Subordinate
A Washington court has fined a Raytheon executive because he did
not reveal he had been given a letter of reprimand for engaging in
an affair with a subordinate. The letter was deemed evidence in a
lawsuit over a consulting contract with the FAA.
While an employee at FAA, Charles E. Keegan, who now heads
Raytheon's Civil Aviation Division, had been having an affair with
a co-worker at the agency. The woman was eventually put in charge
of a contracting program, and Keegan went to work for Raytheon ...
which was awarded multi-million dollar contract over Washington
Consulting Group, which had held the contract for over two decades.
The relationship was investigated by the DOT IG and found to be
"inappropriate". The IG said it created a "perception of
Bloomberg Business Week reports that Washington
Consulting Group sued Raytheon and Keegan for $1 billion. The
judge, while not saying definitively whether Keegan intentionally
or inadvertently withheld the document, did say the end result was
the same ... and ordered Keegan to pay some of Washington
Consulting Groups attorney's fees.
Raytheon continues to maintain that the suit is without merit.
It says it will vigorously defend its self and Keegan. Washington
Consulting Group says the case will force Raytheon to "face public
scrutiny for its misconduct."
