Billionaire entrepreneur and founder of SpaceX, Elon Musk, is breaking a major unwritten rule in government contracting. He’s suing his customer. SpaceX is suing the Air Force after the department awarded a satellite launch contract to a joint business between Lockheed Martin and Boeing. Brett Lambert is former assistant secretary of Defense for Manufacturing and Industrial Base Policy. He spoke on In Depth with Francis Rose about how common this is within the defense contracting community.
