More work for the lawyers of recently acquired leading edge agency OTX: now co-founder Kristin Luck is suing the firm for money she claims she is owed relating to its sale to Ipsos earlier this year.
Luck, who helped set up OTX (Online Testing Exchange) with partner Shelley Zalis in 2000, subsequently founded research services firm Forefront Consulting Group in 2006 - the latter was acquired by online technology provider Decipher.
In January this year, OTX was sold to Ipsos for an undisclosed sum, and Luck is now claiming that the terms of the firm's employee incentive award program entitle her to a sum relating to the sell-off.
In her suit filed with the California Central District Court, Luck also claims she is still owed $82k of the $246k OTX agreed to pay her when it terminated her contract in 2005.
Separately, OTX is suing former employee Kevin Goetz, who left the firm earlier in the year to set up his own consultancy, Screen Engine.
