Commodore International Ltd has responded to former president Thomas Rattigan’s $9m lawsuit alleging unfair dismissal and breach of contract, by weighing in with a suit of its own, demanding a cool $24m in actual and punitive damages, saying that he resigned voluntarily, having paid gross disregard to his duties and failed to exercise proper financial controls; the cases of both sides seem to be somewhat weakened by the fact that Commodore offered, and he rejected, more than $2m to settle the dispute over his contract; in a remarkably mild reaction to the suit, Rattigan’s lawyer described Commodore’s claim for $10m in actual and $14m in punitive damages as silly.
