The Indiana Supreme Court ruled last week Governor Mitch Daniels does not have to testify at a trial that begins Monday.

More than two years after Indiana terminated a deal with IBM to run its welfare eligibility operation, a lawsuit over the breakup is going to trial beginning Monday. The state wants its money back for what it contends was a botched job.

Indiana terminated a 10-year contract with IBM after less than three years. IBM contends it is not to blame and that the state owes the company $100 million in unpaid bills.

Marion Superior Judge David Dreyer has set aside six weeks for the trial. There could be more than 100 witnesses, but Governor Mitch Daniels will not be among them. Earlier this month, the Indiana Supreme Court rejected IBM‘s attempt to put him on the stand.
