Mek Mi Rich Back in Court

This morning, the final case management session for the claim of Curtis Swasey against Belize Telemedia Limited (B.T.L.) and M.M.R. Belize Productions, creators of the television game show Mek Mi Rich, was held before Justice Courtney Abel in the Supreme Court. Trial in the matter has been set for December third, 2015. Businessman Swasey claims that B.T.L. and MMR Belize Productions collaborated to take away his intellectual property, consisting of the idea of lottery texting and the various items he created with B.T.L. staff for two years under a non-disclosure agreement before the company ended their business arrangements in August of 2014. Weeks later Mek Mi Rich aired for the first time and Swasey claims he had got nothing for his work, so he sued. The two companies are represented respectively by Magali Perdomo and Naima Barrow. Business owner Sanjay Hotchandani was also present for the final session. Barrow said after earlier proceedings that her clients can prove that they did not steal from Swasey; M.M.R. says it has its records of where it got the information it needed to start Mek Mi Rich and with Swasey’s information they could compare and file their defence.
