In an unfolding saga reminiscent of a corporate thriller, a former Sprint subcontractor, Unimax Communications LLC, is hurling serious allegations against T-Mobile. The telecom giant, known for its bold moves, is now in the hot seat, accused of causing a staggering $27 million in damages. This financial blow was dealt through an abrupt cancellation of a hefty order for a massive shipment of mobile phones, leaving Unimax reeling without payment.
T-Mobile Reneged On $27M Order : A Legal Storm Brews
Filed in the Western District of Washington, the lawsuit paints a tale of broken promises and corporate intrigue. Approximately a year after T-Mobile’s order of 427,500 Unimax phones, a wrench was thrown into the works. T-Mobile reported a potential defect in the phones, specifically citing battery issues. However, Unimax’s attempts to rectify the situation were stymied. They claim that T-Mobile dragged its feet, withholding crucial data needed to tackle the alleged power issue.
T-Mobile Reneged On $27M Order : The Plot Thickens
As the narrative unfolds, Unimax alleges that T-Mobile’s assurances turned out to be a mirage. After seemingly agreeing on a fix for the power amplifier issue, T-Mobile’s managers engaged in extensive dialogues with Unimax. These discussions seemed to be steering towards resuming the order. Yet, in a twist worthy of a suspense novel, after months of negotiations and new requests for data, T-Mobile pulled the plug on the order in May 2023.
A Cascade of Consequences
The aftermath of this decision was catastrophic for Unimax. The company claims it was propelled towards closure, forcing it to terminate its entire workforce. Adding to the intrigue, the lawsuit suggests a shadowy motive behind T-Mobile’s decision. It alleges that the executive responsible for axing the order subsequently defected to the very competitor that benefited from T-Mobile’s change of heart.
The Battle Lines Are Drawn
Now, Unimax is demanding justice and compensation to the tune of over $27 million. They seek to recover from the fallout of T-Mobile’s alleged reneging and the subsequent financial havoc. As the legal drama escalates, both Unimax’s representation by Edward C. Chung of Chung Malhas & Mantel PLLC, and T-Mobile’s yet-to-be-disclosed counsel, brace for a showdown.
A Silent Front
In a move that adds more mystery to the case, both parties have remained tight-lipped, with no comments forthcoming as of Wednesday. As the legal storm gathers, the industry watches with bated breath, anticipating the next twist in this corporate drama.
