Former Valcom CEO Vince Vellardita Scores Major Legal Victory

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Newark, New Jersey (MMD Newswire) April 28, 2014 — The United States District Court for the State of New Jersey dismissed 5 of 12 charges alleged by Valcom, Inc. in a lawsuit filed against Vince Vellardita, its former President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO), and several co-defendants (Defendants).

Valcom’s Federal suit, filed in May of 2013, sought statutory RICO damages as well as compensatory and punitive damages claiming allegations of RICO, civil conspiracy, fraud, breach of contract, and breach of fiduciary duties. Senior United States District Judge William H Walls’ ruling was in response to Defendants motion requesting the dismissal of all charges.

Former Valcom CEO Vince Vellardita stated, “We applaud Judge Walls’ ruling. It is a clear, decisive victory and validates our position that the allegations were false. I am confident that the remaining claims will find similar results.” Counsel for Defendants, John Balestriere of Balestriere Fariello, a trial and investigations law firm in New York, added, “Even when applying the generous standard which a court must on a motion to dismiss, the District Court still dismissed the RICO claim as well as other claims. I am confident that Valcom shall not only lose on the merits of any remaining claims, but that Vincent Vellardita and his colleagues shall prevail on the counterclaims I expect them to bring against those running Valcom.”

On May 15, 2013, the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) sought sanctions against Valcom, Inc. due to the Company’s failure to file periodic reports since June 30, 2011. On the basis of an Offer of Settlement on July 29, 2013, the SEC issued an order revoking registration of the Company’s common stock. As a result of this order, the Company’s common stock is no longer publicly traded.

“The sad state of Valcom sits squarely on the shoulders of its leadership and must call into question the credibility their allegations. The lawsuit is a thinly veiled attempt to distract Company shareholders from their own failure,” Vellardita added.

While Valcom, Inc. has struggled since his departure, Mr. Vellardita has served as CEO of Paradigm Oil and Gas, Inc. since June of 2013 and is credited with the Company’s sweeping turnaround that includes restoring SEC regulatory compliance and full trading privileges.
