Talgo sues Gov. Walker, Wisconsin

Posted on November 7, 2012

MADISON, Wis. — Train manufacturer Talgo sued Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and the state, claiming it does not have to deliver two new trainsets, JSOnline reported.

The point of contention goes back to last year, when the state didn’t pay the $4.6 million Talgo claimed it was owed for ongoing work on the trains. The two differed over who would pay for testing the trains.

Talgo filed a notice with the state saying it was terminating its contract with the state and a lawsuit asking a judge to declare it had the right to terminate the contract and properly did so. If it prevails, Talgo would get to keep the trains and the money the state has paid to it. For the full story, click here.
