Alcatel-Lucent agrees to pay $4.2M to settle fraud claims

The Justice Department said it is seeking to recover losses whenever a contractor makes a false claim.
But prosecutors said that was especially critical in "hot spots" like Iraq, where it's hard and dangerous to verify invoices.
The Army awarded Alcatel-Lucent the quarter-billion-dollar contract in 2004. The company's former contract manager blew the whistle and he'll get a share of the settlement.
