Ex-prez sues Fujitsu over ousting

Nozoe demands damages, apology

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

The ex-president of Fujitsu has thrown a sue ball at his former employer, following his ousting from the company in September 2009.

Kuniaki Nozoe filed a lawsuit against the Japanese tech giant and four of its execs yesterday, according to the Wall Street Journal.

He is seeking damages that total about ¥380m ($4.5m) and an apology to be published as an advert in national papers.

Nozoe went public in March this year, when he claimed that Fujitsu’s board of directors had sacked him, after the former president asked the firm to nullify or reverse his resignation.

Fujitsu responded to Nozoe’s request by putting out an extraordinary statement accusing him of links with an unidentified third company, which was owned by a group with "an unfavorable reputation".

Nozoe’s lawyers responded yesterday, claiming that Fujitsu had made false accusations of links to organised crime against the tech vendor’s ex-prez. They also claimed that the company had put pressure on Nozoe to quit without allowing him the opportunity to defend himself against the allegations.

Fujitsu declined to comment because it was yet to receive notification about the lawsuit, which was filed with the Tokyo District Court yesterday morning, according to Nozoe’s lawyers. ®
