In 2010, the company reached a $42 million settlement with the Department of State as part of a settlement of violations of the Arms Export Control Act and the International Trafficking in Arms Regulations.
.
Blackwater was founded in 1997 in North Carolina by former Navy SEAL Erik Prince. The company rose to prominence after winning massive no-bid security contracts from the U.S. government at the beginning of the Iraq War.
