MOXIE SOZO DESIGN + ADVERTISING FILES SUIT AGAINST NEWTON RUNNING
Boulder, CO (May 16, 2013)—Moxie Sozo Design + Advertising has filed suit against former client Newton Running for failure to pay outstanding invoices, breach of contract, and to prevent Newton from further using Moxie Sozo’s advertising and creative materials. This is the first time in the agency’s 14-year history it has filed suit against a former client.
Newton Running is a Boulder, CO running shoe brand that hired Moxie Sozo in 2012 as the company’s Creative Agency of Record.

Moxie Sozo has tried for months to collect payment for services out of court, filed a notice of breach in early April of 2013, and has made multiple requests for past due payments.
“In fourteen years of business, we have had phenomenal relationships with our clients,” says Leif Steiner, Principal and Creative Director at Moxie Sozo. “This is a regretful episode that we expect will be swiftly rectified through the courts."
