Darleen Druyun Senior Boeing legal representative Doug Bain has issued the following statement: “Boeing and the Department of Justice have reached a tentative settlement of investigations by U.S. Attorneys in Virginia and California regarding the Darleen Druyun and EELV matters. Under the agreement, Boeing will pay $565 million to resolve potential civil claims and a monetary penalty of $50 million. Boeing will accept responsibility for the conduct of its employees and make additional commitments regarding ongoing compliance. No charges will be filed. The agreement is expected to be signed in the next few weeks.” The broad ripple effects of the Darleen Druyun influence-peddling scandal can be seen via a quick look at related DID articles (see also this article). The EELV, or Evolved Expendable Launch Vehicle, is a US program to produce next-generation space launch rockets involving Boeing and Lockheed. A separate scandal involving the theft of related documents from Lockheed Martin had far-reaching effects, detailed in this March 2005 DID article.
