D/FW AIRPORT -- The Dallas/Fort Worth Airport Board approved paying $300,000 more on Thursday to its lead legal counsel in a federal whistle-blower lawsuit.
The increase brings the contract of Adorno Yoss White & Wiggins, a Dallas law firm, to $2.77 million.
Susan Heath, a former D/FW environmental scientist who oversaw storm-water issues, has sued the airport, contending that the board falsified environmental records to get more than $200 million in federal grants.
A whistle-blower can receive a portion of grant money returned to the government.
