May 28, 2008|From Times Wire Services

The Coast Guard said it would temporarily stop its review and suspend its pursuit of a $96.1-million refund for faulty ships built by Lockheed Martin Corp. and Northrop Grumman Corp. pending a Justice Department investigation.

The Justice Department and the Department of Homeland Security's office of the inspector general are investigating the Coast Guard's Deepwater contracts, including the eight, 123-foot patrol boats found to have structural problems.
