EL SEGUNDO, Calif., Feb. 11, 2013
EL SEGUNDO, Calif., Feb. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --The Layfield Law Firm, on
behalf of its client Dr. Kianor Shah, has filed legal action against Wal-Mart
Stores Inc. and Comfort Care Dental Management (CCDM), a registered Dental
Service Organization (DSO) in Delaware, in addition to several other
individuals. Filed in the Superior Court of California - County of Riverside
on December 21, 2012, (Case # 1218772) this suit alleges counts of civil
conspiracy, misappropriation of trade secrets, breach of contract and
confidence, tortious interference with prospective economic advantage, and
violation of laws, requirements, and regulations.
According to court documents, in late 2008, Dr. Shah came up with the
innovative idea of opening low-cost, full service dental offices in big-box
retailers. Dr. Shah pitched the idea to Wal-Mart, who committed to
put-into-action his clinics; however, Defendant Wal-Mart reverted back stating
that it was no longer interested in having dental clinics inside their retail
stores. Plaintiff alleges that Wal-Mart shared Dr. Shah's proposition for the
dental clinics with fellow Defendants Kent Reeves, former Wal-Mart VP of New
Business Development, and Ken Antos, a long-term restaurant business partner.
In 2012, Wal-Mart opened a Dr. Shah inspired clinic in its Moreno
Valley,California store, run by Defendants Christopher Comfort, Kent Reeves
and Ken Antos. The Plaintiff alleges that the entire plan for the in-store
clinic is an exact duplicate of the ideas he originally shared with Wal-Mart –
down to the very type of dental chairs used.
