Jury Orders Sex Doll Maker, Knighthorse LLC, To Pay Abyss $300 Over Material And Information

VISTA, Calif. A San Diego County jury says the former chief operating officer of a sex doll company must pay his former employer nearly $300,000 after breaking away to form his own love doll company.

Jurors decided Wednesday that Matt Krivicke broke his contract with Abyss Creations LLC and used material from Abyss to start his own firm, Knighthorse LLC.

Krivicke was laid off from Abyss in 2008 and sued Abyss and its owner last year for a share of the company's profits. Abyss then countersued, alleging Krivicke stole material and information to create its life-sized sex dolls Yvette and Adam.

Abyss says it will seek a court injunction next month to stop Krivicke from selling his dolls.

Krivicke's attorney, Laurence Haines, says he'll probably seek a new trial.
