PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - A judge has ordered representatives from Hewlett Packard Enterprise and Rhode Island to appear in court for mediation over the unfinished project to build a new computer system for the state Division of Motor Vehicles.

Democratic Gov. Gina Raimondo (ray-MAHN’-doh) tells WJAR-TV (https://bit.ly/2fwGlsu ) the two sides are scheduled to meet Thursday in state Superior Court. A retired justice has been appointed mediator.

The state sued Palo Alto, California-based HP Enterprise on Tuesday, seeking an injunction that would block the company from walking off the long-delayed DMV system upgrade.

The governor told the news station on Wednesday she won’t be bullied. She says she had a tense conversation about the dispute with HP Enterprise CEO Meg Whitman.

The company has said it has met all its contractual obligations.
