Once the litigation begins, lawyers look at every piece of the process to find unexposed details to make their case. Even then, the next contract award may not be impacted because the court process can drag out for years. So even if a 'fraudulent' vendor is having a problem in one area of government they often continue working for another area (or in our case municipality) because cross communication is pretty non-existent. Again, in my experience...and not true everywhere. At least I hope not.
