The owners of Battle Sports Science, maker of the Impact Indicator, a concussion-detecting football helmet chin strap, and other sports safety products, are fighting among themselves.
Jeff Evans, co-founder of the Omaha-based company, claimed in a recently filed lawsuit that his partners plotted to fire him, block his access to company accounts and pursue new opportunities without him.
The defendants are co-founders Christopher Circo and Tony Schrager. The men have retained attorney David Hefflinger of McGrath & North.
Among other things, Evans claims Circo and Schrager transferred their interests in Battle Sports to a new firm, Active Brands, without his consent, according to the Omaha World Herald. Evans further claims that he was locked out of the Battle Sports office and has been unable to prevent Circo and Schrager from “recklessly” spending money and breaching contracts.
Evans reportedly claims he is entitled to control of Battle Sports.
