ICO Global seeks rehearing of Boeing appeal

Posted: Updated:

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- A communications company wants a California appellate court that reversed a $603 million breach-of-contract verdict against the Boeing Co. to grant a new hearing before a new panel of justices.

ICO Global Communications filed a petition Monday claiming due process was violated when two 2nd District Court of Appeal justices disqualified themselves after months of arguments.

The filing did not specify why Associate Justice Elizabeth Grimes recused herself. She was replaced by Presiding Justice Tricia Bigelow, who subsequently recused herself for unstated reasons. A justice from another division was appointed to the three-judge panel.

The petition claims the new justice had inadequate time to digest the complicated record. It also expresses concern that the recused justices influenced the decision-making process.

The lawsuit involved a contract to build and launch satellites.
