ST. LOUIS — An IT staffing company is suing a former employee, citing alleged defamation and tortious interference.
Uberlegen Technology Group LLC filed a complaint on Nov. 20 in the St. Louis Circuit Court against Alicia Underwood alleging that the former employee tortiously interfered with the plaintiff's business relationship.
According to the complaint, Uberlegan allegedly has suffered damages to its business reputation and goodwill, and have been deprived of the benefit of public confidence and social media and business associations.
The plaintiff holds Underwood responsible because the defendant allegedly retaliated against the plaintiff for the termination of her sister by using social media to falsely attack the plaintiff while hiding her own identity. The defendant falsely proclaimed that she found many illegal happenings and discrimination during her tenure with the plaintiff.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury, and seeks compensatory and punitive damages, interest, and any further relief as the court deems just and proper. It is represented by Edwin C. Ernst IV and Daniel A. Suberi of Carmody MacDonald PC in St. Louis.
