CHARLESTON, SC--(Marketwire - October 01, 2012) - Revolutions Medical Corporation ("Revolutions Medical" or the "Company") (OTCQB: RMCP) announced today that it has filed suit in South Carolina against its former President and Director, Thomas G. O'Brien. The complaint alleges that O'Brien, as a director and officer of the Company, committed fraud, disregarded his fiduciary duties, and breached other obligations owed to the Company and its shareholders, by facilitating and negotiating contracts on behalf of the Company while at the same time sharing confidential Company information with, and receiving bribes from Richard H. Theriault, Strategic Product Development (SPD), and Medical Investment Group, (MIG). Mr. O'Brien never disclosed any of this information to the Company or its management. The complaint alleges further that O'Brien's actions are a clear breach of his employment agreement and his fiduciary responsibilities as an officer of Revolutions Medical. The complaint seeks to recover actual and punitive damages as well as a return of all salary paid to O'Brien under his employment agreement and over 3.6 million restricted shares. A full copy of the complaint is available on the Company's website at http://www.revolutionsmedical.com/rmcp-v-obrien.
Ron Wheet, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of Revolutions Medical, stated, "Recently uncovered evidence seems to indicate that O'Brien has received improper payments from Theriault, SPD, and MIG which, if confirmed, would be a complete betrayal of trust placed in him by all shareholders of our Company. In addition, O'Brien was responsible for the timing and progress of the Company's global distribution process and this new evidence appears to indicate that O'Brien compromised this process by placing his own interests above those of the Company and its shareholders. The sharing of the Company's confidential information with Theriault and his cohorts is unethical and possibly criminal. I will continue to do everything in my power to protect Revolutions Medical's valuable proprietary technology and pursue full legal remedies against anyone who attempts to harm the Company and its loyal shareholders."
