Charges Against ACS' Canadian Subsidiary Dismissed

    DALLAS, Nov. 13 /CNW/ -- Affiliated Computer Services, Inc. (NYSE:   ACS),
today announced that all charges pending against its Canadian subsidiary in
the Provincial Court of Alberta were dismissed by the court today.  The
prosecution last year had dropped all charges against the U.S. parent
    Lynn Blodgett, President and CEO of ACS, said, "ACS is a company that
prides itself on our high ethical standards so we were very disappointed that
these charges were brought in the first place and that the company was
subjected to the expense and reputational damage of over two years of
protracted legal proceedings.  We would not tolerate the type of conduct
alleged against our employees in these proceedings and we were confident from
the time we first received the summons in this matter that our subsidiary had
acted in an ethical and legal manner.  This decision validates our position
and we are particularly pleased that the court dismissed the charges based on
a preliminary hearing without referral to a trial.  We look forward now to
continuing our focus on providing excellent services to our government clients
in Canada and globally."
    ACS, a FORTUNE 500 company with more than 62,000 people supporting client
operations in more than 100 countries, provides business process outsourcing
and information technology solutions to world-class commercial and government
clients.  The Company's Class A common stock trades on the New York Stock
