CONSULTING FIRM Infosys is celebrating after a judge dismissed a lawsuit filed against it by one of its former employees.

In a statement the firm said that it has prevailed in the face of the lawsuit filed by former employee Jack 'Jay' Palmer and was celebrating the fact that US District Judge Myron H. Thompson dismissed the case entirely. Palmer will have to pay costs, said the judge.

"Today's decision confirms what we have been saying from the beginning: Mr. Palmer's claims of retaliation were completely unfounded. This is a company built on core values that include leadership by example, integrity and transparency," said Infosys.

"Those values always have and will continue to shape the way we do business with our clients and, without exception, the way we treat our people. We are pleased to consider this matter officially closed."

Palmer had complained of unfair treatment and harassment at work after he alleged that his employer was abusing the US visa system to hire foreign workers to work illegally on client projects. µ
