Indiana court says IBM breached contract

IBM Corp breached its state contract in the company's failed attempt to privatize Indiana's welfare services but is still entitled to nearly $50 million in state fees, the state Supreme Court said on Tuesday in a ruling that also opens the door for Indiana to seek up to $175 million in damages. The high court's ruling in the long-running case upholds a February 2014 state Court of Appeals ruling and reverses a trial court judge's finding that Indiana had failed to prove IBM breached the $1.3 billion state contract it won in 2006.
