Hearing set in suit

Alabama Aircraft Industries will try to convince a federal judge in Birmingham, Ala., next month to allow its $100 million lawsuit against Boeing to proceed. The small company filed suit in September in which it argued that its former business partner, Boeing, stole proprietary data that let the aerospace giant win $1.3 billion in contracts to maintain KC-135 refueling aircraft. Boeing has filed a motion to dismiss the suit. (Source: Reuters, 04/18/12)
