Agility has been involved in a legal dispute over the Prime Vendor food-supply contracts it held from 2003 to 2010. We anticipate developments in the case this month and wanted to make sure you were aware of them.
It is expected that Agility and the U.S. Justice Department will appear in court on January 13, 2012 where Agility will file its initial motions with the U.S. District Court in Atlanta, Georgia. These filings are important. They represent Agility’s first opportunity to challenge the allegations made by the U.S. Justice Department.
We also expect that on January 24, 2012 Agility and the U.S. Justice Department will appear in court in Atlanta for a previously scheduled hearing to assess the status of the case. At that hearing, the magistrate judge is expected to set future hearing dates and filing deadlines.
Agility believes the Justice Department has criminalized what is, at most, a civil contract dispute. In performance of the Prime Vendor contracts, Agility was open, transparent and accountable to the U.S. government, which approved its prices, suppliers and business practices for seven years. Agility, as it has stated for two years, is open to a resolution of the case, but its focus is now on bringing facts to light in court.
