Plaintiff's Attorney: "Give us $10 Billion"

From the Chicago Tribune, in a case we reported on earlier here, between a defunct Florida company, SPS Technologies, and Motorola, SPS's attorney, Willie Gary, asked the jury yesterday to award his client $10 billion for misappropriation of trade secrets related to a vehicle-tracking system. The amount sought is obviously large, but Gary has a reputation for large verdicts.

According to Gary, the founders of SPS Technologies were duped into giving Motorola, the world's second-biggest maker of mobile phones, engineering details and a client list.

"We said we had the burden of proof and we've proven it," Gary said. "Motorola is guilty, and it's judgment day."

We'll get word to you on the verdict as soon as we get it.
