Blackwater is now known as Xe services. The company will be moving its corporate headquarters, which includes 20 people, from North Carolina to Arlington, according to the Associated Press.
Under the Blackwater name, the firm provided guards for U.S. government officials in Iraq and Afghanistan. The company came under fire after a 2007 shooting in Baghdad that left 17 people dead.
A whistle-blower lawsuit brought by former employees against the company starts today in Alexandria. They accuse the company of cheating the government in bills it submitted for protecting government employees.
However, the judge has already dismissed several of the suit's claims, including an allegation that Blackwater billed the government for prostitutes.
