Attorneys for Crowell & Moring fended off an appealed contract claim handled by Boies Schiller Flexner in a multinational dispute stemming from the sale of $7 billion worth of fighter jets and satellites to South Korea. 

Despite calling facts in the case “vigorously disputed,” Judge Paul Niemeyer of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit wrote in an opinion released Tuesday that the lower court was correct when it dismissed antitrust and Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act claims against Lockheed Martin Corp. and Airbus Defence and Space filed by “offset” transaction broker Blenheim Capital Holdings in 2020.
