LEWISVILLE, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--American Messaging Services, LLC (“American Messaging”), the most trusted provider of critical messaging services in the United States, filed a lawsuit against Doc Halo, LLC citing serious and blatant violations of the Strategic Partnership announced jointly on September 16, 2014.
Among the violations cited in the lawsuit:
- An unreasonable refusal on the part of Doc Halo to provide existing and new American Messaging customers stand-alone secure messaging services and bundled messaging services on the terms contemplated in the Bi-Directional Revenue Sharing Agreement;
- A blatant effort by Doc Halo to recruit for employment American Messaging Account Managers; and,
- Interacting directly with American Messaging customers to sell and directly invoice for stand-alone secure messaging services in contravention of its contractual obligations with American Messaging.
“It was with all the best intentions that we entered into what we thought was a mutually beneficial partnership with Doc Halo in order to provide our valued customers with the most advanced messaging services available,” said J. Roy Pottle, Chairman and CEO of American Messaging. “Despite our earnest attempts to make the partnership a success, we realized that any attempt to forge a trust-based relationship with Doc Halo was fruitless. To ensure the ongoing stability of our company as well as our valued relationship with our customers, we had no choice but to take this legal action.”
American Messaging has requested and expects to obtain emergency relief from the court against Doc Halo and is aggressively pursuing remedies that will allow it to offer customers stand-alone secure messaging services and bundled messaging service, which combines paging and secure messaging into a bundled service all under a single invoice.
