Water Technology Trade Secrets Verdict Thrown Out

From (believe it or not) Water Technology Online, a report on a Texas state court judge throwing out a million dollar verdict in favor of Global Water Group against its competitor, Aspen Water Inc., concerning alleged misappropriation of water purification trade secrets.

Aspen, based in Richardson, TX, makes a portable carbon/ultraviolet water treatment system used by the military and disaster-relief agencies; Dallas-based Global Water also makes water treatment equipment for various applications, including the military and disaster relief.

The judge, on post-trial motions, ruled that "there is no evidence of probative force to sustain the verdict of the jury." He dismissed the damage award and the complaint against Aspen, and assessed Global Water for court costs.
