Court vacates TRO in clash between Kodak Alaris, EPM

Rochester Business Journal
May 21, 2014

Kodak Alaris Inc. on Wednesday said a temporary restraining order issued last week has been vacated in a case filed May 12 by Dallas-based Eastman Park Micrographics Inc.

A judge in state Supreme Court in Monroe County decided to vacate the order originally granted. The order had enjoined Kodak Alaris from soliciting customers of EPM, directly or indirectly.

In the original motion, EPM had alleged Kodak Alaris breached its obligations to EPM by improperly soliciting business from EPM’s micrographics service customers and misappropriating EPM’s confidential and proprietary information.
 
“We are very pleased with this latest development and are confident that the facts in the case will result in a favorable outcome for both Kodak Alaris and our customers,” said Budd Webster, global services general manager and vice president of the Document Imaging division at Kodak Alaris.

Through an agreement signed several years ago, Kodak Alaris had been providing worldwide service on behalf of EPM, the local company said.

Kodak Alaris last week announced a deal with EPM to directly serve micrographics channel partners and customers to provide technical services and support in Europe, Asia and Latin America. The terms of deal were not disclosed.

EPM was formed in March 2011 upon the purchase of the micrographic business from Eastman Kodak Co.

An EPM official said Monday he was unable to comment on the case.
