In addition to Fulton County, the complaint names Consilium Consulting and its chief executive officer, Kwang Kim, as defendants, claiming they intentionally damaged Ficklin’s relationship with Fulton County.
Consilium provides software licensing and support, database administration, disaster recovery planning and other services to the county. Among other things, a report by Fulton’s internal auditor says the company overbilled the county $125,000.
Fulton County Manager Dick Anderson declined to comment on the lawsuit. But he noted the county is seeking an outside assessment of its IT department.
Michael Solis, an attorney for Consilium, said his client has done nothing wrong.
