Independent agency Atomic 212° has taken its former CEO, Jason Dooris (main photo), to court after the disgraced boss allegedly peddled rumours that his former employer was involved in things such as bribery, fraud and money laundering.

The explosive revelations have been detailed in an article on today’s The Australian.

Dooris “departed” his role in February 2018 after he was busted allegedly embellishing entries to win prestigious industry awards and, in doing so, win more business for the agency.

According to The Oz, part of Dooris’ severance package meant he was forbidden to “discredit, defame,  malign or otherwise injure the reputation” of Atomic 212°.

According to a statement of claim filed in the NSW Supreme Court, Atomic 212° allege that following  Dooris’ departure he attempted to peddle untruths about the agency in industry publications.

B&T has contacted Atomic 212° for comment, however, it declined citing it was an issue currently before the courts.

According to The Oz, Dooris had peddled a story to industry journalists that the agency was set to lose AusSuper’s media business. However, Atomic 212° claim AusSuper had never been one of its clients.

From there the relationship soured further, with Atomic 212° claiming mysterious and unnamed letters arrived at the office – and to a client – alleging the agency was involved in – as per The Oz – “committing fraud, taking kickbacks from clients and money laundering”.

Following the arrival of the letters in mid-September, Atomic 212° immediately filed in the Supreme Court for a summons to be served on Dooris restraining him from “publishing” the correspondence.

Atomic 212° is reportedly seeking damages of $300,000 from Dooris who is yet to file his defence. The case continues.
