CHARLESTON, S.C., Sept. 20, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Today, Revolutions Medical Corporation ("Revolutions Medical" or the "Company") (OTCBB:RMCP) filed suit in Charleston County Common Pleas Court against Philip Maurice Hicks (a.k.a. "Marty Hicks) for libel. According to the complaint, Hicks, using the alias "tazmanian353" on two Internet message boards, is alleged to be waging a cyber smear campaign in an effort to destroy RMCP and its corporate management, particularly the company's chief executive officer, Rondald Wheet.
"If you want to get very aggressive with this company," reads one posting by tazmanian353 on RagingBull.com, "buy a small amount of stock in it and I'll show you how to destroy Ron [Wheet.] Trust me, I am."
The complaint alleges Hicks committed multiple counts of libel by falsely accusing Wheet, company president, Thomas O'Brien and RMCP of violations of securities law in a number of postings on the investor message boards of RagingBull.com and Yahoo!Finance relating to RMCP. Further, Hicks falsely accuses Wheet and O'Brien of fraud, assault, identity theft, racketeering, and theft of intellectual property, among other crimes, in order to advance an elaborate "pump and dump" stock scheme.
"As RevMed executes its business plans the shorters, who only profit from the stock declining, whose motives are self serving, continue to lose all creditability. However, the shorters need to recognize that when a line is crossed the company will take appropriate action," says Ron Wheet, CEO.
The complaint seeks unspecified actual and punitive damages from Hicks, as well as injunctive relief requiring the removal of the libelous postings and enjoining Hicks from further libelous activity.
Headquartered on Daniel Island, Revolutions Medical is a safety medical device and software application company. Its products include the FDA-approved RevVac safety syringe. Last week, RMCP finalized an agreement with Medical Investment Group to manufacture a minimum of five million 3cc safety syringes per month for a period of five years.
