Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) June 04, 2014
Hill, Kertscher & Wharton, LLP has filed a lawsuit in Cobb County, Georgia against Armando Christian Perez, the artist popularly known as “Pitbull,” along with RockDoc, LLC and others, on behalf of its client, Alpha Comm Enterprises, Inc., a leading provider of custom wireless accessory programs for carriers, major retailers and distributors. Alpha Comm Enterprises, Inc. v. Rockdoc, LLC et al., Cobb County State Court Case No. 14-A-752-7.
The lawsuit alleges that RockDoc and Pitbull engaged Alpha Comm in early 2013 to manufacture and distribute the “RockDoc by Pitbull” product line under the false pretense that Pitbull was part-owner of RockDoc, had a vested interest in that company’s success, and granted permission for his name and image to be used freely by Alpha Comm. According to court records, the complaint further alleges that after Alpha Comm committed significant resources to market the RockDoc by Pitbull products, Pitbull withdrew his permission to use these rights. In the lawsuit, Alpha Comm seeks to recover actual and punitive damages, as well as attorneys’ fees and expenses of litigation.
