Frere-Jones Sues Hoefler

Fredric S. Newman (PDF), attorney for Tobias Frere-Jones (via John Gruber):

However, in the most profound treachery and sustained exploitation of friendship, trust and confidence, Hoefler accepted all of the benefits provided by Frere-Jones while repeatedly promising Frere-Jones that he would give him the agreed equity, only to refuse to do so when finally demanded.

Michael Burke, attorney for Jonathan Hoefler:

Following his departure, Tobias filed a claim against company founder Jonathan Hoefler. Its allegations are not the facts, and they profoundly misrepresent Tobias’s relationship with both the company and Jonathan.

I was surprised to learn that fonts are such a big business. And, more so, that such an important partnership agreement, between former rivals no less, was apparently never committed to paper.
