Lincare, Teufel settle lawsuit

Crispin TeufelCLEARWATER, Fla. – A federal judge in Connecticut on Nov. 29 approved a stipulated permanent injunction between Lincare and former CEO Crispin Teufel. 

The injunction bans Teufel, who left the company in June to become the CEO of AdaptHealth, and any associates from neither using, distributing nor relying upon confidential data or trade secrets he may have obtained from Lincare or Linde in any future endeavors.   

The deal was entered into "without any admission of fault or liability," according to the injunction. 

Teufel and AdapHealth agreed to terminate his contract following a lawsuit filed by Lincare’s parent company, The Linde Group, which alleged breach of contract, breach of duty of loyalty and misappropriation of trade secrets. 

National Seating & Mobility announced on Nov. 29 that it had hired Teufel as its new CEO
