Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) August 12, 2013
On August 8, 2013, Lunex Telecom, Inc. (“Lunex”) initiated a lawsuit against Krush Communications, LLC (“Krush”), one of Krush’s owners, Richard Estrada, a former Lunex employee who now works for Krush, Jennifer Andrade, and Krush attorney, Jonathan Marashlian. The lawsuit was filed in the Superior Court of Gwinnett County, Georgia, Case No. 13-A-06719-8: Lunex Telecom v. Krush Commincations Et Al.
The Complaint asserts claims for: misappropriation of Lunex trade secrets by Krush, Mrs. Andrade, Mr. Estrada, and Mr. Marashlian; violations of the Georgia Computer Systems Protection Act by Krush, Mrs. Andrade, and Mr. Estrada; unjust enrichment of Krush, Mrs. Andrade, and Mr. Estrada; tortious interference with business relations against Krush, Mr. Estrada and Mr. Marashlian; breach of Mrs. Andrade’s duty of loyalty; Krush and Mr. Estrada’s aiding and abetting Mrs. Andrade’s breach of her duty of loyalty; and a request for attorneys’ fees and expenses incurred in litigation against all defendants.
Krush contacts to Lunex’s distributors, customers, and business partners caused Lunex to question whether its former employee, Mrs. Andrade, had taken confidential, proprietary and trade secret information with her when she left Lunex to work for Krush. These suspicions were confirmed through a computer forensics investigation, the results of which were attached to the complaint filed with the court.
Lunex takes protection of its business relationships, confidential, proprietary and trade secret information seriously and believes its lawsuit is necessary to protect and recover its information, and prevent further improper interference to its business relationships.
