JACKSONVILLE — A federal judge has dismissed a stockholder suit involving a doctor who alleges the former pediatric nurse with whom he embarked on a "cardiology technology" business deal defrauded him as well as other investors.
According to the July 11 U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida Jacksonville Division filing, the defendants Dorothy Glodek, D. Glodek Lucketts Family LLC, Lynda Cole and DMS-Service, LLC asked the court to dismiss claims filed by the plaintiffs Charles P. Richardson Jr; Parks Family, LLC; IntelHeart International, Inc. and AMI Cardiac Monitoring LLC.
In May 2017, Richardson, a doctor who has developed biotechnology related to the cardiology field, entered into a business deal with Glodek, a former pediatric nurse who ran an ambulatory remote cardiac monitoring and data analytics company called AMI Cardiac Monitoring. the ruling states. Their "contribution and exchange agreement" included Glodek and Richardson each making "various transfers" to IntelHeart International, a holding company. Glodek then transferred her interest in AMI to IntelHeart, and Richardson transferred his "proprietary technology" to AMI, according to the court filing.
Richardson alleges that after the deal was signed, Glodek refused to honor his requests for "complete financials" of AMI. He also alleges that Glodek entered into a purchasing agreement with a vendor who supplied "fraudulent, non-FDA-approved" heart patches.
The court noted "deficiencies" in the plaintiffs' complaint including their fraud counts "not satisfying" Rule 9(b) and failing to state a claim on two counts of fraud.
U.S. District Judge Timothy Corrigan dismissed the complaint without prejudice and allowed the plaintiffs to file an amended complaint by August.
