Australian online betting company Sportsbet is suing rival betting firm BetEasy, trying to get a court injunction to stop the employment of a former employee who left Sportsbet to join BetEasy.
The move was announced in the Sydney Morning Herald, and revolves around the employment of Kelli Carpanini. Sportsbet claims that Carpanini's employment at BetEasy is in breach of contract with a non-compete cause listed in her employment contract.
The row comes after Sportsbet founder and former CEO Matthew Tripp left the firm to start another sportsbetting firm.
The filing has been issued with the Victorian Supreme Court, and Casino Listings will update this story as more developments arise.
