David York, et al have other problems, including a federal investigation against CHE through the U.S. Department of Labor for improper job classification. Several field engineers are supposed to be non-exempt and paid overtime. CHE has classified them as exempt and does not pay any overtime as required by federal law. I suspect a class-action suit is in the making.
Btw... I have reviewed the situation of the STK case and the injuction stay has been lifted. The ELEMS at all STK equip'd sites had to be removed and the injunction is currently in effect. The ELEM code seems to be in violation of the law as stipulated in the original STK complaint. CHE does not have the direct ability to monitor the tape libraries unless they ask the customers for host-system reports, which is what they have asked their field engineers to do... it's a mess!
