Sprint sues IBM over outsourcing contract

Sprint Nextel is seeking $600 million in damages from IBM in a Kansas City court, claiming the company didn't live up to its end of an outsourcing deal three years ago. IBM was hired to take over some of Sprint's computer programming to save money. But Sprint says the deal cost the company, and IBM owes it at least $6.4 million for 119,000 hours of uncompleted work. IBM claims Sprint is using an incomplete formula for measuring productivity and the amount of hours owed.
