Apple has sued the Canadian electronics recycling company Geep after it was caught illegally selling over 100,000 Apple devices that were supposed to be recycled. Geep is saying that the responsibility should fall on the three employees that acted on their own but an interesting twist here is that they were reportedly Geep executives.
In its defense, Geep is claiming that it didn’t know about the actions of the three employees who ran the scheme, however, Apple says they were Geep executives:
The documents were just now released with Apple filing the lawsuit against Geep back in January with Geep making a recent filing in July.
Apple is said to be seeking compensation totaling the profits of all of the stolen devices plus another CAD $31 million (USD $23.3 million). Geep wants to see the executives who are allegedly guilty to pay for any damages.
