HP settles suit with Michigan for $13M
LANSING — Hewlett-Packard Co. will pay $13 million to the state to settle a lawsuit.
The suit alleged HP failed to complete a multi-million-dollar overhaul of a computer system at the Michigan Secretary of State offices.
The settlement between two state departments and the tech company, now known as DXC Technology, was announced this week by the office of Secretary of State Ruth Johnson.
The company was contracted for the Business Application Modernization project, which was supposed to update the mainframe-based computer system used by 131 branches and in many internal work areas.
Johnson said that she’s glad to bring the matter to a close without the need for costly protracted litigation. The state sued in 2015.
An email seeking comment from HP was not immediately returned.
