Northern California City Pumps More Money Into Fight With Deloitte

December 28, 2011

Marin County in Northern California is pumping more money into its legal battle with Deloitte Consulting LLP over a $30 million computer system that county officials say was riddled with problems.

The Marin Independent Journal reports that county supervisors earlier this month set aside another $1 million towards the county’s lawsuits against Deloitte. The county has already spent more than $2.6 million on the cases, which accuse Deloitte of using inexperienced employees to work on the computer system and rushing to meet installation deadlines despite problems.

The county pulled the plug on the software program last year after it allegedly could not handle the payroll or other routine financial functions.

Deloitte has said it did a good job. One of the lawsuits also names software giant SAP, which made the software, and the county’s former assistant auditor as defendants.
