N.M. Private Security Co. Target Of Myriad Lawsuits

By | October 9, 2012

The country’s largest provider of private federal court house security officers recently paid a $1.9 million fine to the federal government to settle allegations that some of its guards fudged results of gun-range tests.

Akal Security, a New Mexico company, denied the allegation and said it paid only to avoid further litigation that could cost the company more.

Still, the U.S. Department of Justice investigation resolved last week was just the latest of a long series of legal matters plaguing the company.

The company of 10,000 employees disclosed 134 “pending, or current litigation matters” to a Washington D.C. federal court last year.

Akal president Daya Khalsa says the company is a victim of a litigious society and that other companies of its size face the same number of legal issues.
