SpaceX presses on with legal fight against U.S. Air Force over rocket contracts

SpaceX has asked the U.S. District Court of the Central District of California to hold a hearing on March 2 to consider the company’s protest against the U.S. Air Force.

                        WASHINGTON — SpaceX has asked the U.S. District Court of the Central District of California to hold a hearing on March 2 to consider the company’s eight-months-long protest against the U.S. Air Force.
A request for a hearing and for the court to rule on the case was filed Jan. 8 by SpaceX as the company presses forward with a protest originally filed in May with the U.S. Court of Federal Claims. SpaceX is challenging the Air Force’s decision in October 2018 to award rocket development contracts to Blue Origin, Northrop Grumman and United Launch Alliance.
The U.S. government and the three companies that received Air Force contracts filed motions on Jan. 17 opposing SpaceX’s request.
