DisputeSoft was engaged as a consulting and testifying expert by Rite Aid Hdqtrs. Corp. (Rite Aid) in July 2019 in the matter of PCMS Datafit, Inc. v. Rite Aid Hdqtrs. Corp. before the Delaware Court of Chancery.
In March 2015, Rite Aid contracted with PCMS Datafit, Inc. (PCMS) to provide a point of sale (POS) system and related software support, licenses, and ancillary services. In April 2018, Rite Aid served on PCMS a formal notice of a purported breach of the agreement. Following discussions between the two parties, Rite Aid terminated the agreement on June 1, 2018 and declined to pay remaining invoices. PCMS filed a breach of contract suit on June 29, 2018, alleging that Rite Aid failed to perform its obligations under the agreement, and sought to terminate the agreement after corporate mergers with competitors Walgreens and Albertsons rendered the new POS software obsolete.
