HOUSTON — Circle 8 Crane is suing a former sales employee claiming he breached a stock option/non-compete agreement by going to work for a competitor and not releasing his stock shares as required per the contract. 

Circle 8 Crane Service LLC filed a complaint  March 12 in the Harris County Circuit Court against Earl White alleging breach of agreement. 

White began his employment with Circle 8 Fluid Services, now Circle 8 Crane Services, on May 1, 2013 and first worked as a crane operator then moved into sales. Circle 8 and White entered into a stock option agreement in December of 2016 that included a non-compete confidentiality clause. Circle 8 alleges White breached the agreement by going to work for their competitor, South Texas Crane, and by not forfeiting his shares per the agreement.

Circle 8 seeks monetary relief between $200,000 and $1 million and all other just relief. They are represented by Allan Neighbors of Littler Mendelson PC in Houston.
