Fun lawsuit of the day: Ricky’s Halloween v. Insider-defamer-ghouls!

This lawsuit piece, by Barbara Ross in the Daily News, is fun to read.

It’s too early for ghosts, goblins and ghouls to ring doorbells — but a spine-tingling corporate war is already raging in the Halloween industry.

Ricky’s Halloween Inc. is suing its chief competitor and two former executives who jumped ship, in a Manhattan Supreme Court action rife with allegations of deceit, subterfuge and skullduggery.

Supreme Court Justice Eileen Bransten last week ordered Sandlofer [a defendant] to turn over his laptop computer after Ricky’s lawyers alleged it contained confidential data about Ricky’s plans for the 2012 season.

And she warned Sandlofer not to try to delete anything: “It is all retrievable,” she said.

Nice of Justice Bransten to point up that discoverable documents cannot be deleted or destroyed. Good warning for a couple of defendants I’m thinking of.

Trick and treat!
