A press release was made by Global Tel Link about their ongoing court case with Securus. Most of the claims in the press release are according to Securus, outrageous and out rightly wrong. This is why Securus is fighting back and in doing so, they have come out to make corrections on the main points that GTL was trying to give.
The first allegation that was made by GTL was that Securus was a troll and that for the 16 years that they have been in existence, they have been using lawsuits to get their way in their transactions. GTL claimed that Securus always pursues their contractual agreements and other issues until the legal community settles the issue in their favor. When the claim is looked at from an objective point of view, Securus does get a lot of contracts and get into many agreements. It is only natural that a few would end up in complications, and it does not make any sense to blame their lawyers for being great at their job.
Then, there was the claim that GTL’s technology was still being used by Securus and that they were looking for a way to get an injunction to make this stop. The stoppage is supposed to end the infringements on the patent that GTL had for the technology. On this issue, Securus stated that one cannot claim that an infringement is taking place if an injunction has not yet been given.
GTL also asserted that they were preparing to head back to the court room any time and appeal some of the rulings that had been made. Looking at the issue from an objective point of view, there is no jury that may be in a position to handle this case soon. Besides, there is no simple way to determine whether the technology from GTL had been used as by Securus as stated.
Securus has been a provider of ICT services to over 1.2 million inmates in 3500 correctional facilities across the country. Their business is ensuring that people who have been incarcerated keep in touch with loved ones.
