Gary Aliengena formed ITI in 1996 as an internet-based load board business for the trucking industry. The business matched truckers with freight-hauling jobs. At the company’s inception, Aliengena hired Brewer as director marketing. Within months, Brewer became the company’s president. By 2000, Brewer met Pat Hull, who owned a competing load board business, GetLoaded.com, LLC. In 2002, Hull incorporated FreightCheck, LLC. Brewer was made an equal co-owner of FreightCheck with Hull, and they shared responsibility for managing and operating the company. Brewer operated FreightCheck out of the same building as ITI; used the same software for the two businesses; and directed ITI employees to work clandestinely for FreightCheck. Brewer urged Aliengena to sell ITI to GetLoaded, and in 2004 Aliengena agreed. Before the sale, however, an employee of ITI revealed to Aliengena that Brewer was a co-owner and manager of FreightCheck. Aliengena fired Brewer, and ITI filed suit against Brewer.
