Ind. Courts - "Supreme Court to hear arguments in dispute between state, IBM over canceled contract"

The oral argument is this morning at 9 AM. You may watch it here. Only four justices will hear the case; J.Massa has recused.

From an AP story this morning:

The court will hear oral arguments Thursday in the legal battle stemming from a 2006 contract that Indiana awarded the Armonk, New York-based company to automate much of the state welfare system.

Then-Gov. Mitch Daniels canceled the $1.3 billion contract in 2009 following complaints from welfare system applicants about long wait times, lost documents and improper rejections.

The two sides sued each other, and a Marion County judge awarded IBM $52 million in 2012.

The state appeals court in February found IBM failed to deliver its part of the deal, but ruled it was still entitled to nearly $50 million in fees.
