Raastech versus Meerutech (Update)

November 14, 2017

In December 2016, Raastech filed a lawsuit in the Circuit Court of Fairfax County against Meerutech, LLC, founded by Apurva Singh (aka Apurv Singh) with a principal office at 12968 Park Crescent Circle, Herndon, VA 20171.

Mr. Singh was a Platform Engineering Manager at CloudPassage before joining Raastech fulltime from 2013 to 2015 operating on-site and supporting Raastech’s top client in Michigan. After his resignation, Mr. Singh operated as a subcontractor to Raastech for over 18 months thereafter supporting Raastech's same client.

The complaint filed by Raastech alleged that Mr. Singh engaged in defamation and tortious interference. Raastech obtained evidence supporting its claims. Mr. Singh sent multiple messages from his personal email account to Raastech’s client and knowingly made numerous false statements that reflected negatively on Raastech which led Raastech’s client to issue multiple threats of contract termination. Mr. Singh ignored Raastech’s instruction not to communicate with Raastech’s client during contract negotiations. Mr. Singh shared internal contractual details between Raastech and Meerutech with Raastech’s client despite not being in an authorized position to do so. Mr. Singh attempted to solicit Raastech’s contract despite having signed a non-competition agreement.

Raastech alleged that Mr. Singh’s actions led to its client threatening contract termination multiple times, partially terminating an existing contract, and not renewing any of Raastech’s contracts.

On November 13, 2017, Raastech decided to withdraw its complaint due to the costs associated with ongoing litigation and trial.

Raastech Files Lawsuit Against Meerutech Alleging Defamation and Tortious Interference

December 7, 2016

Raastech announced today that it has filed a lawsuit in the Circuit Court of Fairfax County against Meerutech, LLC, founded by Apurva Singh (aka Apurv Singh) with a principal office at 12968 Park Crescent Circle, Herndon, VA 20171.

The complaint alleges that while operating as a subcontractor to Raastech, Mr. Singh, representing Meerutech, made false and defamatory statements to Raastech’s client as well as harmfully interfering in Raastech’s existing contractual relationship with its client.

Under Virginia law, publication to a third person of a false statement of or concerning another which is harmful or damaging to that person’s reputation is considered defamation. Also under Virginia law, tortious interference occurs when a person intentionally damages a plaintiff’s contractual or other business relationship with a third party.

Raastech’s complaint seeks damages for past and future lost business.
