In late January the Frisby Defendants in the Eaton v. Frisby litigation filed two Complaints against Eaton in Hinds County Circuit Court. Eaton removed the cases to federal court.
One Complaint pleads mostly state law claims that are generally based on the same underlying factual allegations as Frisby’s antitrust case filed in North Carolina.
The second Complaint pleads one cause of action for conspiracy to deprive the Frisby parties of their civil rights.
Not much new here after reading the North Carolina antitrust complaint. One interesting allegation in the Complaints is in paragraph 38. This paragraph states that Frisby cannot list all of the facts that support the Complaints because the Hinds County Circuit Court file is still sealed. Eventually all the dirt will probably get aired.
Is it just me or should Eaton be looking for an exit strategy?
