Intuit and Siebert & Co. Dismiss Lawsuit
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Oct. 26, 2007 – Intuit Inc. (Nasdaq: INTU) and Muriel Siebert & Co., Inc. agreed late Friday to dismiss what was originally a $44.4 million lawsuit filed against Intuit by Siebert & Co. Both parties agreed not to pursue further action or seek any compensation.
The suit, alleging breach of contract and other claims, was filed in September 2003. It followed the termination of an alliance between the two companies that facilitated online stock trading, called Quicken Brokerage powered by Siebert.
"We've consistently maintained that Siebert and Co.'s lawsuit and its claims were without merit," said Laura Fennell, Intuit senior vice president and general counsel. "We think this is a great outcome."
