HUNTINGTON -- University Physicians & Surgeons is suing Perot Systems for failing to exercise the expertise it asserted it had.
Perot Systems Revenue Cycle Solutions, Inc.; Advanced Receivables Strategy, Inc.; and Unknown Named Corporations or Persons 1 through 4 were also named as a defendant in to the suit.
On May 16, 2006, University Physicians & Surgeons and the defendants entered into a contract, under which the defendants agreed to perform with reasonable care certain revenue cycle services, according to a complaint filed Sept. 8 in Cabell Circuit Court.
UP&S claims the defendants failed to possess or failed to exercise the expertise it asserted it had.
As a result of the defendants' failures to perform and material breaches, the plaintiff gave notice on Sept. 30, 2009, that it would terminate the contract on March 31, 2010, according to the suit.
The plaintiff claims the defendants misrepresented their professional education, training and expertise.
The defendants persistently failed to perform their obligations under the contract and materially breached the contract several different ways, according to the suit.
UP&S claims the defendants were negligent and breached their contracts.
UP&S is seeking compensatory damages with pre- and post-judgment interest. It is being represented by Nicholas Reynolds and Cheryl L. Connelly.
The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge David M. Pancake.
