    Corporate Express To Pay $5M To Settle Dispute
    BROOMFIELD,
    Colo. Corporate Express Inc. has reached a $5.02 million settlement of
    a false claims lawsuit stemming from products that the office supply
    business sold to federal agencies, the Justice Department said Friday.

    The
    Broomfield-based company was accused of selling products manufactured
    in countries that do not have reciprocal trade agreements with United
    States, the Justice Department said. It was prohibited from such sales
    under a contract with the General Services Administration.
    A Corporate Express representative was not available immediately for comment.
    Safina
    Office Products and two of its executives, Edward Wilder and Robert Hsi
    Chou Lee, filed the lawsuit in 2003 in U.S. District Court in
    Washington under the whistleblower provisions of the False Claims Act.
    Safina and the executives will receive about $753,000 under the provisions of the law, the Justice Department said.
    Corporate
    Express is a subsidiary of Dutch-based Buhrmann NV, a global supplier
    of office products and graphic systems for the business market.
