AJA CONSULTING GROUP, LLC, ET AL. v. BABAEV, ET AL.
EASTERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK (BROOKLYN)
This case alleges copyright infringement, trademark infringement, trade secret misappropriation, and other causes of action arising from employees leaving and then starting a competing business. This type of situation is always high risk and it is very important that your key employees have contracts that preclude them from doing this type of thing.
Plaintiff Housing Rehabilitation, a subsidiary of AJA Consulting Group, provides consulting services in the home improvement and related financing industry. The Defendants are former employees of the Plaintiffs and are now competing. There are many causes of action brought against the Defendants and the “defamation” is buried in the actions that relate to deceptive misconduct.
Plaintiff Housing Rehabilitation alleges copyright infringement, trade dress infringement, misappropriation of trade secrets, violations of the New York General Business Law, breach of fiduciary duty, and disgorgement of profits. The Plaintiffs prayer for relief requests an award of punitive damages together with statutory interest and costs, an award of disbursements and reasonable attorneys’ fees, punitive damages, and any such other and further relief as the Court may deem just and proper.
