O’Brien Law Firm sues Compass Datacenters, LLC over $200K in unpaid commissions

On June 21, 2018, the O’Brien Law Firm sued Compass Datacenters, LLC on behalf of the firm’s client, a former sales director who, as the lawsuit alleges, was denied $200,000 in earned commissions from his work on the Tierpoint Tulsa Datacenter lease and a project for American Electric Power. In June 2017, Compass Datacenters’s CEO, Chris Crosby, issued a written statement that the firm’s client had earned a $200,000 commission for securing the Tulsa Tierpoint lease agreement that is expected to provide Compass Datacenters with tens of millions of dollars in gross revenues. When the firm’s client resigned about 6 months later, Compass Datacenter refused to pay him the remainder of the commission that Crosby himself said was earned. That case is Cause No. DC-18-08443 in the 14th Judicial District Court of Dallas County. The case is set for a jury trial in June 2019.
