Rhode Island lawsuit demands $1 million from HP Enterprise

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) " Rhode Island is amending its lawsuit against Hewlett Packard Enterprise to demand $1 million it says it's owed over an unfinished project to build a new computer system for the state Division of Motor Vehicles.

Democratic Gov. Gina Raimondo (ray-MAHN'-doh) said Tuesday the lawsuit was being amended because the company missed a payment to the state last week.

The state sued HP Enterprise this month in state Superior Court, saying it has paid more than $13 million for a computer system that hasn't been fully delivered. The sides met for court-ordered mediation.

A judge on Monday issued a temporary restraining order at the state's request requiring the Palo Alto, California-based company to continue working on the long-delayed project.

The company has said it met its contractual obligations. A spokesman has declined to comment further.
