A local not-for-profit has dropped its federal lawsuit accusing a former IT vendor of holding hostage its website and Internet domains.
Evangelical Baptist Missions in January sued the Beracha Foundation, a not-for-profit IT services company, saying Beracha refused to relinquish control of its website and had jeopardized the safety of missionaries serving abroad.
Evangelical Baptist Missions, which has its headquarters in Indianapolis, provides fundraising and logistical support for missionaries and carries out much of its day-to-day administration online.
EBM had been in a contract dispute since last fall with Maineville, Ohio-based Beracha.
Beracha filed its own lawsuit in Warren County, Ohio, saying EBM owed $730,000 in early-termination fees, but that has also been dismissed. Beracha founder Dana Dunmyer said EBM sought mediation talks about four weeks ago, and both sides agreed to drop their suits
