ADT granted continuance by court
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.--In late March, the District Court of Arapahoe County in Colorado granted ADT Security Systems' motion to continue the trial in the case of ADT versus First Protection Inc.
The case had been set for a trial to begin on March 28, 2005. A new trial date has been scheduled for December 5, 2005.
ADT filed a lawsuit against First Protection Inc., a former ADT authorized dealer, in March 2004. The lawsuit alleges that First Protection owes ADT $71,491 for accounts which they claim cancelled after being purchased by ADT and $58,314 in revenue sharing overpayments.
First Protection filed a countersuit asserting wrongful termination by ADT, as well as breach of contract and other claims, and is seeking damages in excess of $8 million.
First Protection also announced that the company will be launching a new web site in the coming weeks which will feature information relating to the case in response to numerous requests for information.
