Suit involving tech company and former executive dismissed in federal court

By Jim Boyle | Feb 9, 2015

PHILADELPHIA – A contract dispute between a Pennsylvania-based technology company and one of its former executives, Scott Kurtz, has resolved itself without admission of liability, per counsel for the defense.

Both sides had filed complaints in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania in February claiming the other had breached employment agreements and competition clauses. However, in a March 4 motion to dismiss, Adaptive Digital Technologies alleged Kurtz's complaint "suffers from a series of flaws, including lack of standing, time bar, and failure to plead elements of the causes of action.”

One day after the plaintiffs filed an amended complaint, Judge Mark A. Kearney dismissed the suit without prejudice on April 2.

ADT was represented in this matter by Mark Halpern and Helena Alexandra Tsourous, of Halpern & Levy in Drexel Hill. Kurtz was represented by Peter J. Kreher and Francesco P. Trapani, from Kreher & Trapani in Philadelphia.
