Guest Blogged by John Gideon of The city of San Francisco filed their lawsuit against ES&S today. The city charges the vendor with a panoply of misdeeds including fraud, breach of contract, negligent misrepresentation and multiple violations of California's Elections Code, False Claims Act and Unfair Competition Law. In a press release concerning this lawsuit the City Attorney, Dennis Herrera, had this to say, "San Francisco's experience with ES&S raises extremely troubling questions, not simply about the integrity of this company's technology, but about the integrity of this company itself," said Herrera. "There can be no more important duty in a representative democracy than to conduct elections, and it is a travesty to see that duty so flagrantly undermined by the fraudulent conduct of an election systems vendor. This is an injustice that cries out for a strong response, and I intend to aggressively litigate the City's interests under our contract and under the law." This lawsuit is on top of the suit filed yesterday by the state against ES&S for nearly $15M.
