Defense of Uniform Trade Secrets Act Violation for Former Employee.
A public company filed an action for an alleged violation of the Uniform Trade Secrets Act against its former employee and her company. The Law Office of Joseph M. Kar, PC was hired after the litigation started and replaced attorneys who did not have experience with trade secrets matters. Mr. Kar immediately secured evidence indisputably showing that the materials alleged to be protected had been widely available through third party vendors for a nominal fee and that the Plaintiff’s general counsel was acting in retaliation due to “sour feelings” over the manner in which the former employee was terminated.
Result: Confidential Settlement.
