LOS ANGELES, May 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- This past Monday April 29th, a Santa Monica jury returned a unanimous verdict in favor of United Medical Devices and against Playsafe, LLC. United Medical Devices had retained Playsafe as a distributor for brand condoms in various territories around the world, including among others the Middle East, Eastern Europe, Russia, the Ukraine, Australia, and New Zealand.
After an unproductive year, during which Playsafe achieved no sales to a single consumer, United Medical Devices terminated Playsafe's contract. Playsafe sued for breach of contract and fraud, seeking $10.5 million in damages. United Medical Devices also sued Playsafe, seeking $700,000 due under the contract.
Following a two-week trial, the jury found 12 to 0 against Playsafe on all its claims and awarded United Medical Devices the full $700,000 sought on its claim. United Medical Devices' principal Jimmy Esebag expressed his gratitude for the verdict: "Justice prevailed. The jury clearly saw through the story concocted by Playsafe's principals Iehab Hawatmeh and Fadi Nora. For this we are grateful."
Iehab Hawatmeh serves as the Chairman, President & CEO and Fadi Nora is a board member of CirTran Corporation.
United Medical Devices will seek its attorneys' fees, which should push the judgment to over $1 million.
