As agreed upon in today's settlement, the state will change the terms of the cancellation from "for cause" to "for convenience" and authorize CNSI to submit its termination claim for work performed up to the date of termination and the costs of winding down the contract. The lawsuit has been mutually dismissed with prejudice and the parties have agreed to release all their claims, excluding CNSI's termination for convenience claim.
"I would like to express my deep appreciation, on behalf of all of us at CNSI, to Governor Edwards and Attorney General Landry," said CNSI President and Co-founder Adnan Ahmed. "They and their respective staffs have acted with prudence, understanding and transparency. CNSI is committed to ethical business practices and defending that commitment forced us into litigation in Louisiana, but today we are pleased to put the issue to rest and work together toward a lasting positive relationship."
