Printing Job Sparks Lawsuits; School Specialty, R.R. Donnelley Sue Each Other
Greenville’s School Specialty filed a civil lawsuit last month in U.S. District Court against R.R. Donnelley & Sons, which acquired the assets of the former Menasha-based Banta Corp. and employs about 1,400 people in Fox Cities (all cities in Wisconsin). School Specialty claims the Chicago-based company delivered a defective product that cost the manufacturer of educational materials more than $1 million.
R.R. Donnelley filed a counterclaim arguing that School Specialty left out a key detail from its job specifications. It says School Specialty cost the printing firm hundreds of thousands of dollars when it took the order to another business.
