Diversified Graphics, Ltd. v. Groves, 868 F.2d 293 (8th Cir. 1989) (full-text).
Factual Background Edit
Trial Court Proceedings Edit
The court ruled that the accounting firm should be held to the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants’ Management Advisory Service Practice Standards, which the firm had voluntary adopted for internal use. While the court refused to acknowledge a cause of action for computer malpractice, by holding the accounting firm to those higher AICPA standards, it achieved essentially the same result.
