Viable Purchase

Video relay service Viable Communications is being bought by New York-based Snap!VRS. Viable is a Maryland-based deaf services company that was recently searched by the FBI in connection with an investigation of a Florida company whose owners have been arrested and charged with conspiracy to defraud the federal government. Viable says it is fully cooperating with the investigation.

Meanwhile, Viable's president is headed to court September first. Mary K. Moylan accuses John Yeh of not pay her wages of more than $7400, according to The Gazette. The Maryland deaf services company faces that trial in Rockville followed by an October civil contract hearing.

Viable has nearly 250 workers, many of whom are deaf.
