MILWAUKEE - Citing a nearly 30-year-old Wisconsin law that requires dealers to receive 90 days notification of termination of their contracts as well as an opportunity to rectify performance deficiencies, five former dealers for ADT Security Services filed a lawsuit in April in Milwaukee County Circuit Court against the company’s registered agent in Madison, Wis.

The lawsuit marks another challenge following ADT’s announcement in August 2002 that it was cutting back on its nationwide dealer program, limiting the number of accounts it would purchase or terminating some contracts altogether because they didn’t meet specific criteria.
