Datalink was a distributor of Equustek product and secretly developed a copy known as the GW1000 with the assistance of a prior employee of Equustek. BC Supreme Court orders have been issued which should prevent Datalink from operating its business and a warrant for the arrest of Morgan Jack, the only known employee, director, and shareholder has been issued. As is evident, Datalink has lied to its primary supplier, the courts, governments, customers and others.
Datalink and Morgan Jack are in violation of multiple court orders, including an order freezing their world-wide assets and an order that they cease carrying on business in any way.
Equustek sued Datalink and its principal, Morgan Jack, in the courts of British Columbia, Canada, in April 2011. Equustek claims that Datalink and Morgan Jack, while acting as the distributor of Equustek’s products, conspired with one of the plaintiffs’ former engineering employees to design and manufacture a competing product – the GW1000 – using trade secrets which they took from Equustek.
Before launching the GW1000, Datalink and Morgan Jack covered over the Equustek logo and sold Equutek’s products (the DL3500, DL4500, and others) as if these products were Datalink’s.·Datalink and Morgan Jack incorporated multiple “Datalink” companies over many years in order to make their illegal profits as difficult to trace as possible.Datalink and Morgan Jack filed defences with the court denying Equustek’s claims. However, since then Datalink and Morgan Jack have violated multiple court orders and their defences have been struck out. Judge Dickson's decision and her order, of June 2012, may be viewed on the COURT ORDERS page. As a result of having their defences struck out, Morgan Jack and Datalink are deemed to have admitted all of Equustek’s allegations.READ MORE
