Grant Thornton Backs CPA2Biz in Lawsuit
The lawsuit, which lists 93 separate complaints, seeks, among other things, to enjoin the defendants from continuing the operation of the AICPA's for-profit Web portal, CPA2Biz.
Chicago-based accounting firm and CPA2Biz auditor Grant Thornton has joined the dispute by siding with the AICPA in this matter.
A statement issued by Grant Thornton reads, "We are shocked by the suit brought by BDO Seidman and do not believe that any global accounting firm would be a part of a suit against CPA2Biz. We believe that the AICPA is working for the best interest of the accounting profession, and that disputes should be handled internally, rather than in court."
