A simmering dispute between Cirrus Design Corp. and a former supplier has taken an unusual turn with Cirrus now accusing the other company of spreading false rumors about its financial health, according to a story in the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.

The suit says L-3 also encouraged them to end their supply relationships with the aircraft company.”
