EL SEGUNDO, Calif., Feb. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Layfield Law Firm, on behalf of its client Dr. Kianor Shah, has filed legal action against Wal-Mart Stores Inc. and Comfort Care Dental Management (CCDM), a registered Dental Service Organization (DSO) in Delaware, in addition to several other individuals. Filed in the Superior Court of California - County of Riverside on December 21, 2012, (Case # 1218772) this suit alleges counts of civil conspiracy, misappropriation of trade secrets, breach of contract and confidence, tortious interference with prospective economic advantage, and violation of laws, requirements, and regulations.
According to court documents, in late 2008, Dr. Shah came up with the innovative idea of opening low-cost, full service dental offices in big-box retailers. Dr. Shah pitched the idea to Wal-Mart, who committed to put-into-action his clinics; however, Defendant Wal-Mart reverted back stating that it was no longer interested in having dental clinics inside their retail stores. Plaintiff alleges that Wal-Mart shared Dr. Shah's proposition for the dental clinics with fellow Defendants Kent Reeves, former Wal-Mart VP of New Business Development, and Ken Antos, a long-term restaurant business partner. In 2012, Wal-Mart opened a Dr. Shah inspired clinic in its Moreno Valley,California store, run by Defendants Christopher Comfort, Kent Reeves and Ken Antos. The Plaintiff alleges that the entire plan for the in-store clinic is an exact duplicate of the ideas he originally shared with Wal-Mart – down to the very type of dental chairs used.
