United States Department of Justice, Office of Public Affairs Press Release


ArmorSource LLC has agreed to pay three million ($3,000,000.00) dollars to settle a qui tam case alleging that it delivered military helmets to the military, which were manufactured using methods that did not conform to contract requirements. In May 2010, the Army began recalling the helmets after several lots failed ballistic safety tests. Attorney Andrew J. Campanelli represented the relators together with co-counsel. Mr. Campanelli’s clients will receive four hundred fifty thousand ($450,000.00) dollars, a portion of which will be paid as attorneys fees.
