CSC has initiated legal action against Eric Pulier, formerly head of strategy for the company’s Emerging Business group, over his actions as head of service.
Pulier is alleged to have made improper payments to executives of Australia’s Commonwealth Bank. Those payments are said to have won ServiceMesh the deal, making it a tastier acquisition target for CSC, which suspended Pulier from his duties once news of the allegations emerged. The executive later resigned ahead of CSC’s intended termination of his employment.
CSC documents seen by The Register indicate the company has prepared sueballs “to recover the damages caused by Mr. Pulier’s fraud, breach of contract, and breach of the duty of loyalty he owed to CSC.”
