OCALA — A manufacturer is suing Milspec Products Inc. and Jeremy Summers, Florida corporation, citing alleged unfair competition.
Skybolt Aeromotive Corp. filed a complaint on Oct. 14, in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida Ocala Division against the defendants alleging that they breached its duty of good faith and fair dealing.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that, in 2000, Skybolt Aeromotive Corp. discovered that its fierce competitor, in the conversion/cowling kits business, and defendant in this case is continuously causing plaintiff significant damage to its business and reputation through false and misleading advertising and statements, such as claiming that all their products have FAA-PMA approval versus plaintiff's products that it accuses of being substandard and not covered with warranty, all with the intent to influence and direct consumers toward their business, thereby causing plaintiff to suffer losses. The plaintiff holds Milspec Products Inc. and Jeremy Summers responsible because the defendants allegedly breached its duty under a settlement agreement by releasing false statements against plaintiff with intent to harm, benefit financially and deceive the purchasing public.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment in its favor, restraining order, defendant's profits and gains from violation, costs, attorneys' fees, damages and further relief that the court deems just. They are represented by Amber N. Davis, Jackson O. Brownlee and Kevin W. Wimberly of Beusse Wolter Sanks & Maire PLLC in Orlando.
