The Courthouse News Service in Texas reported the faith-based film company sued former executives to stop unauthorized spending on a film project and to seek relevant financial information on production of a new film, Hoovy.
EchoLight contends the movie project received more than $1 million in studio money but had not received financial documents as requested. The lawsuit was filed after EchoLight Global Strategist Christopher Morrow, and former president, Robert Downes, were both fired. Morrow was fired for the financial issues and Downes reportedly for disparaging company principals and projects.
The lawsuit was filed after disagreements among EchoLight’s new CEO Rick Santorum, former U.S. Senator and presidential candidate, and the two men.
Courthouse News said EchoLight seeks damages and an injunction for breach of contract, conversion, and breach of fiduciary duty.
