It’s not exactly a good thing when your lawsuit is dismissed in bankruptcy.
But that’s exactly what happened to a bankruptcy case filed by a software engineer.
“It’s unfortunate,” said Bill Worthen, a lawyer in Houston who represented the plaintiff.
“The bad news is the guy is out of a job.” “
The Software Engineer lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court in the District of Columbia in March by a woman who claims she suffered emotional distress from the bankruptcy filing. “
The bad news is the guy is out of a job.”
The Software Engineer lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court in the District of Columbia in March by a woman who claims she suffered emotional distress from the bankruptcy filing.
The woman says the software engineer had “intentionally, and maliciously” used her name and likeness in his lawsuit.
She alleges the software expert misappropriated her identity and copyright and used her picture in a lawsuit.
The case is pending in U.K. courts.
Worthe says the case is not being heard in the United States.
WORTHE SAYS HE’S GONE TO THE LAWYER’s Corner: “We’re not going to make any further comment on this matter.
It’s too late.”
Worthes lawyer says the woman is suing the software company, a subsidiary of Hewlett-Packard Co., for defamation and breach of contract.
“There’s no doubt this is an extraordinarily vexatious matter,” he said.
“This case is one of the most vexatiously complex in the history of this court.”
Wortshe says he was surprised when he was contacted by the woman in March.
“We knew it was her,” he recalled.
“She’d never been a client before.”
WORTHES LAWYERS CORNER: “The case is now being heard by the U and UK courts.”
He says the company has not responded to requests for comment.
Wortshes lawyer said the woman filed her case in August of this year.
The plaintiff claims the software developer “will not be able to pay damages for the emotional distress that he suffered because of the false representations.”
The woman, who is also suing the defendant, the federal bankruptcy court, said in a court filing that her “personal and professional reputation was irreparably harmed” and she was “devastated by this lawsuit.”
The court filing does not address the allegations that the software was used to “create a false appearance of legitimacy for the lawsuit.”
Wires was one of several companies to file a lawsuit challenging a bankruptcy filing by the software firm.
The lawsuit was one among a number filed against the software maker in March, after it was discovered the company was using fake names in the filing.
In April, another bankruptcy lawsuit filed by another software company claimed Wires created a phony credit card number and used that for a fraudulent loan application.
“Wires is the defendant in a suit filed by Plaintiff in the State of Michigan seeking damages for fraudulently obtaining a false credit card authorization number and for fraudulent loan application information,” the suit said.
Wires spokeswoman Krista McAlister said the company does not comment on pending litigation.
Wired spokeswoman Emily Osterman said Wires has not filed a lawsuit since the court filing.
“In the meantime, we are continuing to provide support to the plaintiff in the ongoing litigation,” she said.
A spokesman for Hewlett Packard did not respond to requests to comment for this story.
