NATICK, Massachusetts, March 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- After two years of vigorously defending against meritless multiple lawsuits brought by Philadelphia-based Cintron Beverage Group or "CBG", through its principal owner Wes Wyatt, Vedozi Inc. and its principal, Victor Edozien, are pleased to announce that they have won.
The dismissal confirms Edozien's long-held resolve that CBG's case was without foundation and not entitled to a ruling that sought monetary compensation and a cessation of lawful and legitimate business activities outside of the United States where Vedozi Inc.'s business partners have established a global brand known as Cintron Premium Energy Drink.
Wes Wyatt's CBG erroneously claimed that Vedozi Inc. and Victor Edozien were infringing U.S. trademarks (which had not even been registered and are being contested in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office), based primarily on nonsensical allegations relating to lawful and legitimate business activities engaged in by Vedozi's business partners outside the United States.
"There was never a doubt in my mind that all of the claims against Vedozi and Mr. Edozien lacked merit and it was only a matter of time before they would be dismissed. I am gratified that my clients were fully exonerated from the baseless allegations made against them," said Vedozi's counsel, Kevin B. Hirsch of Michigan-based Jaffe Raitt Heuer & Weiss, P.C.
The two-year long attempt by Wes Wyatt's CBG to damage Vedozi's business interest was finally dismissed by Judge Sanchez "with prejudice" which means that they cannot be resurrected. All of CBG's claims have been dismissed. The beginning of the end came when the Judge refused CBG's nefarious attempts to go after Victor Edozien individually. CBG's misguided efforts to go after other Edozien businesses -- including The Asaba Group, Inc. and AG Manufacturing, Inc.-- which had no connection to the beverage industry or any involvement whatsoever in the activities alleged in the lawsuit, also failed spectacularly.
CBG finally folded once and for all when Wes Wyatt, as the Chairman of CBG, agreed to dismiss all of the remaining claims brought by CBG without receiving any money from Vedozi Inc., Edozien or anyone else.
Victor Edozien expanded on this theme: "From the beginning I have always said these lawsuits were baseless and a brazen attempt by CBG to aggressively assert rights they do not have or own! This case was also unsuccessful in its attempt to damage the character, reputation, and integrity of myself and my business partners. I was adamant that I would never pay one dime to make these frivolous allegations go away and I DID NOT! Vedozi Inc. has a bright future and my partners and I are now free to move forward and aggressively execute our global business plans. This victory serves as a reminder that any similar attempt to misappropriate Vedozi's interest will be contested vigorously anywhere in the world. Let this be clear to potential adversaries: We have the resources, courage, relentless determination, and perseverance to say to them – 'There is a line that cannot be crossed and there is a point beyond which they must never advance."
