HOUSTON – A Harris County company alleges a former employee violated an agreement when he left to work for a customer.
Bashen Corp. filed a complaint on Sept. 15 in the Harris County District Court against Christopher Rodriguez and ALS Services USA Corp. alleging breach of contract and breach of non-competition covenant.
According to the complaint, Rodriguez worked for the plaintiff from March 2012 to May 2017 and that ALS Services USA Corp. was a customer. The suit states that in May, Rodriguez resigned and accepted a position with ALS Services USA Corp. the same month, which the plaintiff alleges violated the non-competition agreement Rodriguez signed.
The plaintiff holds Rodriguez and ALS Services USA Corp. responsible because Rodriguez allegedly misappropriated confidential internal documents and provided them to his new employer.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks monetary relief of more than $200,000 but not more than $1 million and such other relief to which it is entitled. It is represented by Ruth M. Willars and Phillip Beggett of Monty & Ramirez LLP in Houston.
