IMPROVE: because of the assistance of numerous, my legal group has navigated a dismissal into the 2nd lawsuit with prejudice. This week, a 3rd $10Million lawsuit showed up. See the story that is full:

I’m a designer by training that one time had a bulb minute. This minute led me to keep my safe and sound $120,000 each year work and profession to construct a dating that is online we called Cheekd. Once I established, we “did it appropriate” by putting the trademarks, technology, and patents in position to make certain I happened to be protected. In addition had lovers and strategists, not forgetting my very own grit and passion as a foundation.

One of the biggest possibilities of my entire life arrived whenever I’d the opportunity to pitch my startup Cheekd on a bout of Shark Tank. But that time has additionally put me personally when you look at the cross hairs of somebody whom viewed a re-airing of the episode. Couple of years later on, that exact same individual called me in a $1 million lawsuit that stated he “invented” the concept behind my business, while additionally accusing their previous specialist in identical lawsuit of sharing their so-called innovation chemistry.com beside me. The catch is the fact that the specialist and I also have not met together with never ever talked and failed to understand of every other until this lawsuit. And regardless of this fact – and despite my having conceived of and commenced building the company before he also started therapy using the above referenced therapist – it took over 10 months and $50,000 getting the situation in the front of the judge whom dismissed the lawsuit in a pre-trial meeting.

Straight Right Right Back? Well right right right here’s where it gets crazier. The same individual whose case had already been thrown out less than one year ago, has now tendered a second lawsuit against me containing the same allegations because without reproach! Such is the world that is kafka-esque I’ve discovered myself thrust into.

Therefore such as for instance a movie that is terrible keeps creating sequels nobody ever asked for, he came ultimately back. This time around, the stakes skyrocketed into a whole new $5 million lawsuit against myself, my company and also the specialist. The suit also asked for inventor’s liberties to my patent! Further, he asked not merely for the “cease and desist” purchase for Cheekd, also for our startup company spinoff Networkd, a Bluetooth networking software. Luckily, the judge dismissed the $5 million claims, but I happened to be nevertheless obligated to fight the creator liberties problem. I discovered myself once more fighting to guard all that we have actually produced within the last 12 years by investing over $100,000 that i really do not need to save what’s mine.

After almost a couple of years and 7 months protecting my concept, my business and my patent in 2 back yet again to back lawsuits, Honorable Judge Englemayer directed the Federal Court of NY to enter judgement when it comes to defendants (ME!) also to “shut this instance” as “no reasonable juror may find that he’s eligible to be detailed being a joint inventor.”

One or two hours months later on, the threequel arrived — a fresh $10 Million lawsuit in NYC’s Supreme Court for defamation {and all sorts sorts of other claims that are frivolous.

From my conversations and investigations, it really is clear why these kinds of frivolous legal actions are epidemic as well as the most useful PR support, strategic advisors and board of directors cannot assist overcome. And even though a worker of an organization is protected, somebody who boldly follows their very own eyesight and chases their particular goals is virtually unprotected through the absurdity of legal actions claiming that the concept is certainly not actually yours.

Even though the plaintiff’s legal actions have efficiently damaged my company, please help me to continue steadily to fight this battle by donating what you could. While you might understand. I am the lady that never ever threw in the towel and never ever will. 100% of the things I raise goes straight into fighting this instance until justice will eventually prevail.

We appreciate you making the effort to hopefully read and share my tale as well as your consideration in donating to my cause.

********Please no negative reviews as these kinds of remarks (the general public’s commentary) have added in my experience finding myself in this mess.*******
