Just as it is about to be acquired by 24/7 Media, e-maildistribution firm Exactis.com is slapped with a lawsuit.

E-mail marketing firm emaildirect Inc. this week filed a civil suit against email distribution firm Exactis.com, alleging unfair trade practices, breach of contract, fraud and negligent misrepresentation.

The lawsuit, which seeks $5.3 million in damages, apparently stems from a business relationship between the two companies. Emaildirect.com contracted with Exactis.com to deliver its valuemail product to its subscribers. When that contract wasn’t fulfilled to emaildirect’s expectations, the company filed suit to have these issues addressed by a court.

“Despite representations of their capabilities, Exactis could not fulfill our service needs as contracted,” stated emaildirect president Gary Brooks.

Exactis.com is in the process of being acquired by 24/7 Media, in a deal valued at $490 million. Inquiries made to both companies seeking their comments had not been answered at press time. Interestingly, if the deal goes through, this will be the second time that 24/7 Media has acquired a company facing a lawsuit. When it acquired Sabela Media, that company was the defendant in a suit filed by DoubleClick.
