PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Hewlett Packard Enterprise has countersued Rhode Island over an unfinished project to build a new computer system for the state’s Division of Motor Vehicles.

WPRI-TV reports (https://bit.ly/2h3NHDr ) HP Enterprise asked a state Superior Court judge on Monday to dismiss the state’s lawsuit against it. The Palo Alto, California-based company also is now seeking $14 million in damages from the state in the countersuit.

Rhode Island had sued HP Enterprise last month after the company threatened to walk off the job unless it received more money for the long-delayed project. A judge has ordered the work to continue for now.

HP Enterprise in its court filing disputes the contention it was required to deliver a fully functional system.

The two sides are due back in court Wednesday.
