Protective Products International Inc. (PPI) will pay the federal government $960,000 to resolve a False Claims Act suit, the Dept. of Justice announced on April 10, 2008. The suit alleged that PPI sold the government Zylon bulletproof vests it knew were defective because the Zylon material was not appropriate for ballistic applications.
