An Auckland Councillor is hoping Auckland Transport has a water tight case against the company that had its electronic ticketing system contract cancelled.
Snapper is seeking 10 to 20 million dollars in costs and says court action is one of the options.
Chief executive Miki Szikszai says they want to reclaim reasonable costs.
He says they're seeking legal advice on how best to proceed and court action is one of the options.
Auckland Transport says it hasn't been formally notified by Snapper.
Council member George Wood is extremely disappointed that this has degenerated into litigation between Auckland Transport and Snapper.
"It would be a huge burden on the ratepayers, but councillors have received assurances from Auckland Transport that all is well and good, so we'll now have to await the conclusion of the process."
Auckland Transport says they have not been formally notified of Snapper's claim.
