Court: Daniels Doesn’t Have To Testify In IBM Suit

by Rick Howlett on February 14, 2012

From the Associated Press:

The Indiana Supreme Court says Gov. Mitch Daniels doesn’t have to answer questions under oath in a $400 million lawsuit that the state filed against IBM Corp. after he canceled a state contract with the company.

The court issued its ruling shortly after hearing arguments from lawyers for the state and IBM on whether a state law prohibiting governors from facing a court subpoena applied in the two sides’ counter lawsuits over the nearly $1.4 billion canceled contract to process welfare applications.

The court’s 5-0 order reverses a Marion County judge’s ruling that the law didn’t protect Daniels from being deposed by IBM’s lawyers.

The trial in the case is scheduled to start Feb. 27.
