Court dismisses Agility appeal in fraud case

ATLANTA (Reuters) - A U.S. appeals court has ruled against an attempt by Kuwaiti logistics firm Agility to avert its prosecution over charges it defrauded the U.S. Army in multibillion-dollar contracts.

The ruling by the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta should allow the case against Agility to proceed after more than a year of legal argument over whether the company was correctly served with an indictment by U.S. prosecutors.
