Ethically Speaking - October 2008

The Ethics Committee closed four cases in September.

Non-Tradeloop member, Vive Electronics was the defendant in two of these cases (Case # 4969 and Case #4976), and was banned from the Tradeloop community. One case involved the alleged non-shipment of prepaid goods; the other was an RMA dispute.

Case #4991 was closed due to non-response from the complainant.

Case #4962 was a dispute between Caenri Corporation (complainant) and ICT Group (defendant). In this case, the complainant alleged that the defendant sent defective disk drives and refused to issue an RMA. The defendant replied that the drives were out of warranty and not eligible for return. In an unusual split decision, the Ethics Committee voted to take no action, but to post the case and allow the Tradeloop community to review the details of the case.

In other Ethics news, two cases are being reviewed by the Ethics committee – and both involve the same defendant. And two new cases were filed, both alleging that the defendant refused to honor a purchase order.
