EDS sued by BSkyB for £709m

EDS, under threat of legal action by HM Revenue and Customs, is being sued by BSkyB in a case that began this week in London’s Technology and Construction Court.

EDS is accused of making a “deliberate, cynical and dishonest” sales pitch for a multi-million-pound contract to build a customer service system. EDS will vigorously refute the allegations. The case is expected to last six months. The Financial Times is covering it.
