NEW YORK A concrete-testing laboratory faked results for a LaGuardia Airport control tower, the new Yankee Stadium, the Lincoln Tunnel and more than a dozen other projects around the city, creating thousands of phony reports for tests designed to make sure concrete was strong enough, prosecutors said Thursday.
American Standard Testing and Consulting Laboratories Inc., President Alan Fortich and five staffers pleaded not guilty to racketeering and other charges in the latest of a string of prosecutions of concrete-testing labs.
Fortich and the company "vehemently deny the allegations in the indictment, and we shall fight this case," said their lawyer, Richard R. Leff.
