Hertz Hits Back at Accenture, Accusing Firm of 'Extortionate Conduct' in Contract Dispute

Accusation follows news of motion to dismiss


The legal counsel for Hertz delivered a stinging rebuke to Accenture in a New York court last week.

After the consultancy filed a letter alerting Judge William H. Pauley III that it would move to dismiss the rental company’s April breach-of-contract suit, Brown Rudnick, the law firm representing Hertz, submitted its own document on May 23 stating that Accenture’s arguments do not “have any merit.”

In the letter, Hertz rejects “Accenture’s characterization of the facts” that the firm had completed all responsibilities required by the statement of work agreements following delays in the launch of Hertz’s new website and mobile app.
