Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) June 16, 2011
EZShield, a leading provider of identity theft protection, today announced that it has filed a lawsuit in Bexar County, Texas District Court (case no. 2011-CI-09943) against Harland Clarke seeking money damages and injunctive relief arising from Harland Clarke’s alleged unauthorized use of confidential information relating to EZShield’s flagship offering, the EZShield Check Fraud Protection Program®. The lawsuit asserts, among other things, that through Harland Clarke’s misuse and conversion of EZShield’s confidential information, business know-how and expertise, Harland Clarke brought to market an imitation of EZShield’s Check Fraud Protection Program®.
