NEW YORK (CBS 2) — A software company is accusing the New York City Medical Examiner’s Office of stealing secrets.

The Medical Examiner’s Office paid Michigan-based Gene Codes $13 million over three years to help identity 9/11 victims’ remains, according to The New York Times, and now the company claims the office gave its information to the F.B.I. once the deal expired.

City lawyers said Gene Codes did not honor its promise to upgrade the system for free after the initial contract ended and have filed a countersuit.
