Item 8.01 – Other Events


Commencement of Litigation Against Prior Management and Related Parties


In its Current Report on Form 8-K, filed April 9, 2018, Applied Energetics, Inc. indicated that its management was engaged in corporate due diligence on previous company financial and stock transactions with particular attention on large dilutive events, including issuance of shares that were registered on the Company’s Registration Statement on Form S-1 and as executive compensation from March 2, 2015.


On July 3, 2018, having determined that sufficient evidence existed of wrongdoing by prior management, with our legal counsel, Enterprise Counsel Group, located in Irvine, CA and our Delaware counsel located in Wilmington, DE, we commenced a lawsuit in the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware.


In connection with the lawsuit, we have filed a Verified Complaint with the following six causes of action:


1.Breach of Fiduciary Duty of Loyalty against George Farley


2.Breach of Fiduciary Duty of Care against George Farley


3.Aiding and Abetting Breach of Fiduciary Duty against AnnMarieCo LLC (“AMC”)


4.Conversion against George Farley


5.Fraudulent Transfer against George Farley and AMC


6.Injunctive Relief against George Farley and AMC


We have also filed for a Temporary Restraining Order to prohibit the shares indicated in the complaint to be transferred or sold until the court makes a final judgement.
