Occupy Oakland Business Fraud Verdict: Oakland Jury Awards $9 Million Against Multi-National Corporation for Business Fraud and Breach of Contract
Date:11/9/2011

OAKLAND, Calif., Nov. 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- As the Occupy Oakland General Strike was raging outside the courthouse doors, local business owner, Peter Allen was waiting for a jury to tell a large corporation that Oakland would not tolerate lies and greed in business dealings.  Mr. Allen had been fighting a lawsuit against Texas-based corporation, Healthtronics, Inc. for three years.  Closing arguments were given on Wednesday, November 2, 2011 the same day as the Occupy Oakland General Strike.  On Friday, November 4, 2011, the jury returned a verdict in Mr. Allen's favor for over $9 million finding that Healthtronics had breached the contract and made intentional misrepresentations to Peter Allen.  Healthtronics was recently purchased by ENDO Pharmaceuticals (Nasdaq: ENDP).  Long-time Oakland lawyer, J. Gary Gwilliam represented Peter Allen.  Mr. Gwilliam said:

"This case was very topical.  It was exactly what the 99% are complaining about – corporate greed, corporate misconduct and corporate misrepresentations by a large company taking advantage of a small business owner.  The jury agreed that this kind of conduct will no longer be tolerated."    

Peter Allen is the owner of Allmed Systems, Inc. dba Lisa Laser USA in Pleasanton, California, a small corporation run by Mr. Allen.  Allmed Systems is a distributor of medical products including surgical Revolix lasers used to treat prostate conditions.  Mr. Allen entered into an exclusive distribution arrangement with Healthtronics in 2007 whereby Healthtronics agreed to use its best efforts to market and sell the Revolix laser and increase patient access to what was indisputably the best surgical laser on the market for prostate issues.  Instead of using its best efforts to market the Revolix laser to the entire medical community, Healthtronics used it to entice urologists to build partnerships with Healthtroni
