News in brief

Princess Diana’s former lover, hired and fired by Fox News as a war correspondent, loses his breach of contract claim because he was hired by a rival and thus had no damages.

California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has canceled plans to award a no-bid $5.7 million to manage a state prison facility.

The Rhode Island Supreme Court says the state can go ahead and award a contract to UnitedHealthcare (sic); the bidding process was mucked up but the state did not act in bad faith.

Maryland firms are likely to be big winners as a result of Lockheed Martin’s winning bid on a $15 billion helicopter contract.

Lockheed, though, got some bad news when the Pentagon announced that its C130J transport aircraft program will be scrapped as of 2007.
