Chicago, Illinois (PRWEB) November 07, 2011
A small developer of cellular broadband networking software and systems, Lemko Corporation, and two of its executives, brought suit today in Cook County Circuit Court alleging that Motorola Solutions, Inc. and its lawyers abused the legal process and tortiously interfered with Lemko’s business opportunities in an effort to destroy the company and the reputations of its executives.
The complaint accuses Motorola and its lawyers of an array of wrongful acts. The alleged acts have occurred during a four year period in which Motorola kept shifting its legal theories, including but not limited to abusively using subpoenas on Lemko’s customers, suppliers, competitors and investors as well as creating false rumors of Chinese spy rings and more.
The suit brought by Lemko alleges the loss of more than $1 billion in business opportunities.
Nicholas Labun, Lemko’s Chief Executive Officer, said, “This lawsuit alleges a gross abuse of the legal system by a supposedly responsible company . . . one that appears to have willingly bent the rules and went outside the legal process itself to destroy our business.”
In 2007, Motorola and its legal team were sanctioned $23 million by a federal judge in a Florida intellectual property matter (SPS Technologies Corp v. Motorola Inc., 02-3159, Circuit Court, Broward County, Florida) that famous lawyer Willie Gary said, “sent a message to corporate America and to Motorola that you can’t cheat and get away with it.”
“Motorola apparently didn’t get the message. Its actions against us are disgraceful and I am confident in the end will be condemned by the jury and the trial court,” said Labun.
