The federal government has filed to take over a civil lawsuit to recover tens of millions of taxpayer dollars from computer vendors accused of lavishing Houston school district officials with generous gifts in exchange for hefty contracts.

The suit accuses Texas businessman Larry Lehmann and former Houston company Analytical Computer Services of scheming to get inside information from school district officials and of rigging the competitive bidding process for federal technology contracts dating back to 2002.

Mr. Lehmann could not be reached for comment.
