Industry lawsuit dismissed
Slightly over two years ago Funeral Director Daily reported that it had read in Bloomberg Law that a lawsuit had been filed by plaintiff Park Lawn Corporation against the defendant PlotBox.
The wheels of justice seem to grind slowly and we had not even thought about that case until earlier this week when we received a press release on the status of the case. Here’s the conclusion of that case as reported in the recent press release authored by Plotbox.
Here’s what the press release stated:
NOVEMBER 28, 2022 — PlotBox, the mission-critical software solution for deathcare operators globally, recently announced a Stipulation of Dismissal with Prejudice had been filed with the United States District Court for the District of Delaware in a purported trade secrets lawsuit.
Park Lawn Corporation, the Plaintiff in the case, dismissed the lawsuit without a settlement agreement or compensation. United States District Court Judge Stephanos Bibas signed the Stipulation of Dismissal on November 1, 2022, which marks a successful and final conclusion of the lawsuit for PlotBox. Because the action was dismissed with prejudice, the Plaintiff is precluded from bringing another action on this claim.
“We are pleased to report that, the case is now fully and finally closed.,” said PlotBox President and CEO Sean McAllister. “We have maintained all along that there was no basis for the lawsuit and are happy that the suit was dismissed.”
On June 25, 2020, the Plaintiff filed the original lawsuit (20-CV-01484) in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas. On October 29, 2020, the Texas court dismissed the lawsuit. The next day, the case was refiled in the United States District Court for the District of Delaware.
“We were always confident in a positive outcome,” added McAllister. “We’ve remained focused on building our business and supporting our customers. We look forward to announcing some exciting product news in the near future.”
