Airframe Systems Inc. Sues Raytheon, L-3 Communications and Former Airframe Employee for Trade Secrets Misappropriation

By Todd
Portfolio Media is reporting that Airframe Systems has sued Raytheon, L-3 Communications and a former Airframe Systems employee for allegedly misappropriating Airframe Systems' source code to enable Raytheon to upgrade aircraft fleet maintenance software it had licensed from Airframe Systems. The case was filed in federal court in Massachusetts and seeks unspecified compensatory and punitive damages and injunctive relief.

Airframe Systems alleges that it offered Raytheon an upgrade for $150,000.00 but Raytheon refused the offer and proceeded to use Airframe Systems' source code to accomplish the upgrade effects on its own. The lawsuit alleges violations of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, common law fraud, tortious interference with contract, and misappropriation of trade secrets.

We'll report any updates on this one.
