It's someone who lost. The lawsuit was filed by DieBold, another
manufacturor of voting equipment. Massachusetts did extensive user and
reliability testing of all the bidders' equipment. Another vendor's
equipment scored higher over all and on accessibility than Diebold.
Diebold is saying that our Secretary of State misapplied best value and
the other system requirements provisions of the bid. The court has not
ruled yet on Diebold's request for an injunction to stop further
purchases under the $9 million contract.
