By Andrea Shalal-Esa WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Command Technology Inc, a privately held firm that developed electronic maintenance manuals for Lockheed Martin Corp’s F-16 fighter jet, has won a $24.8 million judgment against the Pentagon’s biggest supplier for unfair competition. Groton, Connecticut-based Command makes similar software for many other U.S. weapons systems, but sued Lockheed after being shut out of the work on the 4,500 F-16 fighter jets that have been sold to the U.S. military and two dozen other countries. A jury in the Circuit Court of Maryland for Montgomery County, where Lockheed is based, found after a week-long trial that Lockheed competed unfairly and injured Command, according to a verdict sheet filed late Monday with the court. The jury also found Lockheed “torturously interfered” with Command’s economic relationships.
