Hold On, Company Tells U.S. Army

ALEXANDRIA, Va. (CN) - CNA Corp., a nonprofit defense contractor, claims the Secretary of the Army will violate environmental laws by moving 6,400 employees from Fort Belvoir to the office center where CNA already employs 600 workers. It challenges the Army's planned move to the Mark Center, on I-395 in Alexandria.

CNA says it's a nonprofit, "federally funded research and development center serving the Department of the Navy and other defense agencies." It says it has a lease on 160,000 square feet of the Mark Center, good until 2015. It claims the Army violated numerous laws that require it to report on the environmental impacts of the planned move.

CNA is represented in Federal Court by Barry Steinberg of Washington, D.C.
