California Attorney General Bill Lockyer has announced he will join Alameda County in a False Claims Act suit against Diebold Elections Systems.
The suit alleges that the company sold Alameda County software that was not federally certified and not tamper-proof. The county spent $13 million on the touch-screen voting machines.
The San Francisco Chronicle reported on the suit on September 8, 2004. CorpWatch published an article on the suit on the same day.
