More on Hewlett-Packard Trade Secrets Claims

Fleshing out the story we reported here last week, the San Jose Mercury-News has further details on the former HP executive accused of misappropriating the company's trade secrets. Seems the allegations first surfaced in his divorce case when his wife tried to get details of a business he started on the side while employed by HP in Japan. That business (dealing with flat-screen TVs, HP now says, was based on its trade secrets.

The employee is claiming that HP told him to spy on Dell and obtain that company's trade secrets. He's also claiming that he was the subject of illegal "pretexting" by HP private investigators.

This one will take some sorting out.
