Intellectual Property Suit against Sandbox Proceeds in Federal Court

HOUSTON – October 4, 2018 – Arrows Up, LLC, the latest target of Sandbox’s competition-stifling litigation, will secure a stay for yesterday’s Texas State Court judgment pending a ruling from the Texas Court of Appeals. Arrows Up becomes yet another company to be party to Sandbox’s demonstrated pattern of lawsuits against competitive innovation within the frac sand logistics industry.

“From the beginning, this lawsuit has been an attempt by Sandbox to shut out competition and we are committed to fighting for open competition within our industry while protecting our superior intellectual property claims,” said Kevin Shuba, CEO of managing affiliate OmniTRAX.

Arrows Up business operations continue without interruption while the company resolves the outstanding contract dispute in the Texas Court of Appeals.

“The lower court judgment is not enforceable until the appeals process is complete and it does not address the pivotal issue of contract enforceability,” added Shuba. “We remain convinced that the contract as written is an unenforceable restraint of trade and will seek relief in the Texas Court of Appeals.”

In addition to the Texas State Court appeal, Arrows Up, LLC continues its federal suit against Sandbox to protect its first in time superior intellectual property rights.
