As expected, Michael Arrington and TechCrunch have filed a federal lawsuit
against Fusion Garage, over the hotly contested CrunchPad
web-tablet project. The lawsuit - which you can see here
- accuses Fusion Garage of "violation of the Lanham Act, breach of fiduciary duty, misappropriation of business ideas, fraud and deceit, and unfair competition" and cites not only correspondence between the two organizations but content from Fusion Garage's now-deleted blog. Arrington also runs through eight other points, including a passing spank to other blogs that "link to the [JooJoo] pre-sale site without disclosing [Fusion Garage's financial situation] to readers".
