PA Settles a Lawsuit Over Unemployment Compensation Claims Against IBM

Gov. Tom Wolf’s administration on Tuesday discontinued a lawsuit against IBM after suing the company four years ago, accusing it of failing to deliver on a contract to produce an updated system for processing unemployment compensation claims.

However, Wolf’s administration refused to provide a copy of any agreement with IBM, or describe all of its terms.

In a brief statement, Wolf’s Department of Labor and Industry said it settled and resolved the lawsuit “following an extensive discovery period and exchange of expert reports and opinions,” and revealed no terms other than saying that IBM “acknowledged no liability or wrongdoing.”

The department did not file any sort of agreement paperwork in Dauphin County court, where the lawsuit had been filed. All it filed was a one-sentence discontinuance Tuesday morning, according to court records.
