Venice, FL, October 22, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Freeland Systems, LLC has filed claims in a lawsuit in Federal district court (Case No. 09-cv-02767 (PJS/AJB) in Minnesota against FSL Acquisition Corp., a Minnesota corporation, Kardia Health Systems, Inc., and Gus Chafol of Rochester, Minnesota. Among other items, the lawsuit claims, breach of contract, fraud and conversion by Kardia under an asset purchase agreement executed with Freeland Systems in May, 2008 (http://www.freelandsystems.com/_Files/Answer_and_Counterclaim_).
According to the lawsuit, on September 21, 2009, Kardia allegedly defaulted on a significant payment due to Freeland Systems on a promissory note issued by Kardia in connection with the asset purchase agreement. Kardia’s alleged obligation under the promissory note is secured by a security interest granted by Kardia to Freeland Systems in all of the purchased assets. These alleged assets include: Freeland technology, the AccessPoint™ software suite, PACS solutions, PDF interface technology, and the business operations, customer lists, employees, and trade names of the former Freeland System business.
Under the asset purchase agreement’s terms, the alleged payment default has triggered Kardia’s obligation to return all purchased assets to Freeland Systems and Kardia Health Systems is no longer authorized to sell, distribute or market AccessPoint™ products or any other solutions that use Freeland Systems technology.
Kardia Health Systems Inc. is partially owned by The Mayo Clinic Foundation.
