Re: R-179 order is delayed, again....protest

A few years back, Kawasaki was dedicating it's new plant in Lincoln, Nebraska. In attendance was the very popular and extremely likable Senior VP of Subways (at that time). During the dedication, he made a speech in which he touted the unequaled quality of the Kawasaki Product (or words to that extent). That comment was featured in A full page article in one of the NY News Papers. Unfortunately, IIRC they were bidding on the R-160 contract at the time and that comment brought about the threat of a law suit because since that senior VP was part of the selection process, the other vendors felt that they were not playing on a level playing field. While I will not get into the specifics of the current ethics mess, I think that several of the unsuccessful bidders might have a supportable claim in court.
