Electronic Voting Manufacturer Claims Testing Lab's Shoddy Work Wreaked Havoc

Electronic Voting Manufacturer Claims
Testing Lab's Shoddy Work Wreaked Havoc

January 23, 2009

MANHATTAN (CN) - Premier Election Solutions, formerly known as Diebold, claims it was defrauded by SysTest Labs, which claimed to be expert in testing electronic voting systems. Premier says SysTest's work was so shoddy the federal Election Assistance Commission suspended SysTest's accreditation a week before the 2008 presidential election, wreaking havoc with Premier's business.

Premier claims SysTest, of Denver, violated a 2006 Master Professional Services Agreement for Voting Systems and defrauded it by failing to report honestly on SysTest's continuing problems.

NIST suspended SysTest's accreditation on Oct. 28, throwing Premier into havoc, the complaint states. It says it had to hire a new company to test its machines, and its relationships "with election officials in more than 2,000 jurisdictions in 33 states" were affected. It claims that SysTest denied that its problems constituted a breach of their agreement, and says that SysTest did not assist it during or after this chaotic period.

Premier seeks punitive damages for fraud, fraudulent inducement, breach of contract, unjust enrichment, conversion and deception. It is represented in Federal Court by Steven Bennett with Jones Day.
