Guest-Tek Files Claims Against SolutionInc & Glen Lavigne in Massachusetts
Federal Court in the US

CALGARY, Aug. 31 /CNW/ - Guest Tek Interactive Entertainment Ltd., ("Guest-tek" or "the Company"), a world-class provider of broadband technology solutions to the hospitality industry, announced that on July 9, 2009, it commenced a civil action against its former employee, Thomas Pullen, and PureHD Inc., claiming breach of fiduciary duty by Mr. Pullen, misappropriation of Guest-Tek's confidential, trade secret and proprietary business information, violation of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (18 U.S. C. § 1030 et seq.), violations of the Lanham Act (15 U.S.C. § 1123(a)), unfair and deceptive acts and practices (Mass. G.L. c. 93A), and related common law claims.  Following the defendants' filing of a Motion seeking to dismiss a number of the claims asserted by Guest-Tek, the Court allowed Guest-Tek to proceed with all claims except the unfair and deceptive acts and practices claim against Pullen individually.

As a result of information revealed during the discovery process, on March 19, 2010, Guest-Tek filed a Motion to Amend the Complaint together with the proposed First Amended Complaint, by which Guest-Tek seeks to add SolutionInc Ltd. ("SolutionInc") and its President and Chief Executive Officer, Glen Lavigne, as defendants to the action.  The proposed Amended Complaint includes claims against Lavigne and SolutionInc for civil conspiracy, misappropriation of Guest-Tek's trade secrets, aiding and abetting Pullen's breach of fiduciary duty, aiding and abetting Pullen's and PureHD's conversion of Guest-Tek's property, and unfair and deceptive acts and practices.

On July 30, 2010, the court allowed Guest-Tek's Motion to Amend the Complaint, thereby permitting Guest-Tek to pursue the claims against SolutionInc and Mr. Lavigne. The Amended Complaint has now been filed with the court.  The case is in the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts, C.A. 09-CV-11164.  All publicly filed documents in the case can be accessed via the Court's PACER system at cr="true" href="http://www.mad.uscourts.gov/">http://www.mad.uscourts.gov/
