Ind. Decisions - Closing arguments set for April 3rd in State/IBM trial

From the March 30th Indianapolis Star:

Attorneys for the state and IBM have finished presenting witnesses and evidence in a trial over dueling lawsuits filed over a canceled welfare-modernization contract.

Both sides will give their closing arguments Tuesday. Marion Superior Court Judge David Dreyer could rule at any time after that.

The trial began Feb. 27 and has lasted about a month. IBM rested its case Wednesday; the state did so earlier this month. * * *

[Marion Superior Court Judge David Dreyer] has already ruled on some issues in the case.

Earlier this year, he decided that the state owes IBM about $40 million in fees, and he capped the damages the state could seek at $125 million.

On Sunday, he dismissed 17 of the state's claims that alleged that IBM had provided false information throughout the contract.
