Metro, Affiliated Computer ask $1M settlement approval
Metro Government and Affiliated Computer Services have reached a settlement agreement in their 3-year dispute over a $1.9 million software project that was to modernize handling of Metro traffic-violtion cases. Software provided by ACS didn't work. Metro will accept a $1.1 million payment from ACS, if Metro Council approves the resolution sought by the parties, Sept. 16. News coverage 18 months ago included an ACS representative declaring Metro's lawsuit to be "without merit."
