NetScout Responds to Court Order, Revises Complaint Against Gartner

February 19th, 2015

NetScout Systems’ complaint against Gartner just got a little thinner — and a lot less entertaining for anyone who enjoys perusing page upon page of "prejudicial, immaterial, unnecessary" and improper allegations that "attempt to plead evidence rather than facts."

Connecticut Superior Court Judge Charles T. Lee ordered NetScout attorneys to revise the complaint to eliminate what Gartner’s team had characterized as "references to law that does not apply; industries that are not involved; historical scandals that are irrelevant; and nonparties having nothing to do with the dispute."

The revised complaint, filed this week, is a mere 49 pages — nine pages lighter than the original one Westford, Mass.-based NetScout filed last August against Stamford, Conn.-based Gartner.
