Attorney for Coke/Trade Secrets Defendant Wants Access to Coke Employees

By Todd
Coca-Cola trade secrets defendant Joya Williams' lawyer, Janice Singer, said a lawyer for the Atlanta-based company has blocked her ability to contact current employees. Singer described the tactics as a "strong-arm approach and stonewalling."
Coca-Cola has asserted that direct contact with the employees is inappropriate and that it would prefer that Singer file her questions in writing to the company's lawyer, who would provide responses.
But Singer said interviewing the witnesses directly is essential to her defense. She said she wants to talk to at least five current Coca-Cola employees.
Singer wants a judge to enter an order allowing her to talk to those employees who are not managers. As to the ones that are managers, she wants the court to ask them if they'd be willing to talk to her.
