Rolls-Royce faces whistleblower suit

Former quality control officers say company cheated the U.S. government

U.S. District Judge William Lawrence decided on Monday that Rolls-Royce Corp. must face a whistleblower lawsuit. Judge Lawrence ruled that plaintiffs Thomas McArtor and Keith Ramsey, both former Rolls-Royce quality control offices, could move forward on two of their four liability theories.

The plaintiffs allege that the airline engine manufacturer cheated the U.S. government when it failed to report defense contract product defects.
