Sir Vivian Ramsey, judge in the long-running BSkyB vs EDS case has instructed Hewlett Packard, owner of the EDS business, to pay interim damages of £200m (US$317 million).
Sky had alleged that EDS had made fraudulent claims and negligent misrepresentations to win the bid to design, build, manage, implement and integrate the process and technology for a new CRM system for Sky’s customer contact centres.
The judge has found in favour of Sky who claimed damages of £709 million (US$1.13 billion).
Damages must be paid by February 17th 2010, though HP is seeking permission to appeal the judgement.
