L.A. County assesses $4.5 million in damages from former Boca Raton engine manufacturer

L.S. County and Boca, Florida-based Cummins Corp. have agreed to pay $4 million to resolve civil claims and a federal investigation, county officials said Tuesday.

L.A.’s attorney general said the settlement comes after a long investigation that included reviewing documents and interviewing thousands of people.

The agreement was reached on Monday, County Commissioner Mary Ellen Yee said.

Cummins said in a statement that the company was “shocked and saddened” by the allegations, which included the theft of nearly $1.6 million in company funds.

The company has already begun a $250,000 financial restitution program, and has agreed to provide financial support to other victims.
