Australian bookmaker Sportsbet has filed a Supreme Court injunction against Beteasy, in order to halt staff members defecting to new online betting operator Betasy.com.

BetEazy.com, is the new sports betting brand of ex Sportsbet Managing Director and Founder Matthew Tripp.

Sportsbet, who are owned by Irish gambling operator – Paddy Power filed a court injuncation with the State of Victoria Supreme Court. They allege that  Head of Customer Services Kelli Carpanini  had begun working with Beteasy.com and Matthew Tripp, thus breaching her non-compete clause period.

Sportsbet fear that confidential information regarding their  operations and customer base may have been passed onto the new operator targeting the Australian sports betting market. Sportsbet appear to have further concerns regarding poaching of staff by BetEazy.com

Matthew Tripp acquired independent online sports betting operator – BetEzy, rebranding the site to BetEazy.com. Tripp had severed out a three year non compete clause after selling his remaining shares in Sportsbet to Paddy Power.

BetEazy.com is set to fully launch its new sports betting verticals in May this year.
