Two defense contractors who employed Washington Navy Yard gunman Aaron Alexis are pointing fingers at one another after keeping him on the job despite his mental health problems. The dispute led contractor Hewlett-Packard to cancel its work with subcontractor, The Experts, which hired Alexis to do IT work on U.S. Navy bases. Authorities on federal contract law say the finger-pointing may have broader implications if families of the victims of the shootings file lawsuits.
