Irvine, California (PRWEB) June 18, 2012
ASG Samini Law Group, counsel for Scilabs Nutraceuticals, a dietary supplement manufacturer, has filed suit against Joseph Nolan, financial advisor to current Atlanta Falcons’, and former Kansas City Chiefs', tight end Tony Gonzalez. The suit, filed in California Superior Court, alleges that Gonzalez breached several long-standing contractual agreements with Scilabs as a result of advice from Nolan, a partner at Dallas, Texas based financial planning firm Robertson, Grieg and Thoele (RGT Capital Management).
The complaint, Orange County Superior Court case number 30-2001-00526093-CU-BC-CJC, alleges that Nolan is liable for inducing breach of contract, willful interference with contractual relations, deliberate interference with prospective economic advantage, and aiding and abetting a breach of fiduciary duty. According to the lawsuit, it is alleged that Nolan sought to interfere in his client’s partnership with Paul Edalat, Director of dietary supplement manufacturer Scilabs Nutraceuticals. Edalat and Gonzalez partnered up to form All-Pro Science, Inc. (APS), a line of all-natural sports supplements.
Edalat states that, "It could have been worked out," but feels that Gonzalez received "poor coaching" on how to handle the matter.
Scilabs’s lawsuit also accuses Joseph Nolan and RGT Capital Management of alleged oppression, fraud or malice under Section 3294 of the California Civil Code, and asks for punitive damages as well as attorney’s fees and other costs associated with filing a lawsuit.
Scilabs is represented by Bobby Samini and John Whalen of the Samini Law Group.
