March ss. 1997 DALLAS (AP) GTECH Corp. and ousted lottery director Nora Linares have reportedly agreed to mediation in order to settle a dispute. Linares' lawyers blame GTECH, the state's prime lottery contractor, for her dismissal in January and have Mid they are prepared^* awa the company for dMnapea^P    vt People familiar with the negotiations told The Dallas Morning News that both parties were headed for mediation. Buck Wood, one of Linares’ lawyers, confirmed the reports. "As you know, we stated that we intended to file a lawsuit,” he said. "This has resulted in mediation ” He would not provide further details. GTECH spokesman Bob Rendine wouldn't confirm or deny that the company had agreed to mediation. Ms. Linares was fired by die Texas Lottery Commission in January. Attorneys for Linares say GTECH compromised her when they hired her boyfriend, Mike Moeller, as a $6,000-a-month consultant in New Mexico in 1992 without her knowledge. Moeller, a former agriculture commissioner, was under federal indictment at the time. Linares, who earned $82,687-8; year in her position with the Texas Lottery, said she didn't know Moeller worked for GTECH until last November when she was questioned by reporters about his GTECH job GTECH officials have said Moeller was hired without their knowledge by an ‘‘emu*’’ employee, J. David Smith, former national sales manager. Last October, Smith was convicted by a Newark, NJ federal jury of taking kickbacks from political consultants he hired to assist GTECH in New Jersey Linares initially sued lottery commissioners aller the was fired, saying she was dismissed for political reasons That suit was later dropped and her attorneys focused on GTECH. In a motion to dismiss the original lawsuit, her lawyers said they'd received information that led them to conclude that she "has been substantially damaged by the actions and course of conduct by GTECH and its employees, officials and representatives.” GTECH officials have denied the allegations. Mediation allows parties to attempt to settle their differences in an informal, private setting, lf no agreement is reached, the aggrieved party can seek relief in the courts.
