A Swiss Court Decides to Allow Gypsies' Holocaust Lawsuit to Proceed

[A] Swiss appeals court decided that a group of five Gypsies could sue IBM in Switzerland. Previously, a lower court had dismissed the case on the ground that it lacked jurisdiction - deeming IBM's Geneva office only an "antenna," and not its European headquarters. But the appeals court held that jurisdiction was proper. The Gypsies allege...that IBM helped the Nazis commit mass murder, by providing them with punch card machines and computer technology that resulted in the coding, tracking and killing of Gypsies. [also refers to Deutsche Hollerith Maschinen (Dehomag) (formerly part of IBM)]
