Well you have nothing to worry about. Since they lost fair & square, there won't be grounds for a protest.
Actually there is a few other grounds to not protest. Those being that they will lose out on many other lucrative contracts. What is the most they can win (if one might call it a win) - they will manage to nullify the contest. Courts cannot make going buy something. Result? Boeing/LM or any other american vendor will never get invited. In addition, the evaluation reports will become public. Can you imagine confirmation officially of the super hornets breathing difficulties?
Any legal assault will turn into a big lose-lose-lose for boeing-india-us. So, before you begin trying to show off the legal prowess of these companies, you may want to step back and appreciate the larger game. In this particular one they cannot win the battle, they can do damage and keep others from winning. However, that action is certain to guarantee their loss of the war.
Peace out George
