Judge tosses thrift board's AMS lawsuit

A federal judge has thrown out a lawsuit filed by the Federal Retirement Thrift Investment Board against American Management Systems Inc.

Judge James Robertson said the plaintiff, Roger W. Mehle, head of the board, lacked the authority to lodge the suit.

The suit, filed in July, accuses the Fairfax, Va., company of mismanaging the modernization of a record-keeping system for the

Thrift Savings Plan. The suit was prompted by a series of schedule delays and cost overruns [GCN, July 30, 2001, Page 15].

The board, which sought $350 million, said it would appeal the ruling to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.
