Swiss court rejects lawsuit alleging IBM helped Holocaust

A Swiss court has rejected a lawsuit against IBM which claimed the US technology giant helped the Nazis exterminate millions of people during the Second World War, the plaintiffs' lawyer said Tuesday. The Geneva court ruled that the case was subject to the statute of limitations, preventing legal actions decades after the event, lawyer Henri-Philippe Sambuc said. Sambuc...said he would ask Geneva's appeals court to overturn the ruling... IBM has said that the case is groundless, rejecting allegations that it was in any way complicit in the Holocaust.
