Michael Dell faces questions in crime-camera case

Michael Dell faces questions in crime-camera case

Michael Dell, chairman and CEO of the eponymous computer vendor, has been deposed by a New Orleans judge in a lawsuit concerning double-dealing in that famously corrupt city’s crime-camera program.

The lawsuit is heinously complex, but we can safely say that it accuses the computer vendor of acting improperly when providing a lucrative security-camera system to New Orleans. In the deposition, Michael Dell will be asked about whether the sale of the security cameras came up in an alleged meeting between him and New Orleans mayor Ray Nagin in June 2004.

The meeting remains “alleged” because, according to the AP, a Dell attorney claims that neither Nagin nor Michael Dell remember it. Another Dell employee, however, recently said in a sworn statement that he was at the meeting, which he said took place “on or about June 21, 2004″ – although he said that only public-school equipment was discussed, not crime cameras.
