AUSTIN, TX, UNITED STATES, November 11, 2020 / -- BidPrime Inc. today announced that Ramsey County, Minnesota, has agreed to a stipulated injunction, bringing to an end the Texas-based company’s legal action against the county for alleged intentional violations of a Minnesota law that grants prospective vendors access to government-issued proposal requests and supporting documentation.

However, BidPrime said it is continuing its lawsuit against Ramsey County’s co-defendant, Seattle-based DemandStar Corp.

In that remaining matter, BidPrime is claiming breach of contract and is seeking $50,000 in damages from the county’s document custodian, DemandStar, for denying BidPrime access to materials its clients needed to help them prepare bids, according to court records.

The stipulated injunction between BidPrime and Ramsey County was entered into on Oct. 29, 2020. Per the terms of this settlement, BidPrime is entitled to receive "in a prompt and appropriate manner" as required by Minnesota law the bid-opportunity documents the company requests, court papers indicated.
