Alabama Supreme Court Issues Unanimous Ruling Dismissing Case Against Lightfoot Client CGI Technologies and Solutions Inc.

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (November 12, 2018) — Lightfoot, Franklin & White LLC has secured a unanimous ruling from the Alabama Supreme Court dismissing a taxpayer action against the firm’s client, CGI Technologies and Solutions, Inc. Alabama State Auditor Jim Zeigler brought the suit to challenge CGI’s software contract with the state.

In its ruling, the court found that CGI had fully performed its contract to install a new enterprise software system for all state agencies — rendering moot Zeigler’s effort to either set the contract aside under Alabama’s competitive bid law or collect restitution.

The Lightfoot team representing CGI included partners Sam Franklin, Chris King and Wes Gilchrist, along with associate Amie Vague.
