ExxonMobil sues ex-employee
ExxonMobil is suing a retired employee after being charged for equipment, it says, it never received.
ExxonMobil Chemical Co. filed suit in Harris County District Court on Oct. 21, stating that ex-employee Garry Arnold, doing business as Metal Blinds Unlimited, and One Source Industrial Manufacturing failed to follow standard operating procedures, as well as to follow the law, when doing business with Exxon.
According to the suit, Arnold defrauded ExxonMobil out of hundreds of thousands of dollars by ordering furnace equipment which ExxonMobil never received. Arnold was affiliated with the company from which he ordered the equipment.
In the suit, ExxonMobil alleges they suffered serious financial difficulties resulting from Arnolds deceptive and illegal business practices.
It was the responsibility of Arnold, ExxonMobil says, to follow the law and conduct business in an ethical manner.
ExxonMobil is being represented by Houston attorney Glenn Legge. It is seeking an injunction, actual and punitive damages, as well as court costs and attorneys fees.
