Virginia Joins Whistle-Blower Suit Against Guardrail Firm

Updated on

Virginia joined a whistle-blower lawsuit against Trinity Industries Inc. over an allegedly defective guardrail system, becoming the first state to say it will seek to claw back money spent on the company’s roadside safety hardware.

Trinity sold the state thousands of unapproved and potentially dangerous pieces of highway guardrail equipment, according to the complaint unsealed in state court in Richmond.
