Trade Secrets and Stone

From the San Diego Business Journal, another big money verdict in a trade secrets case. The story concerns a San Marcos, California company, Eldorado Stone LLC, that manufactures artificial stone veneer which won a $21 million verdict in a trade secrets case in San Diego against Renaissance Stone Inc., a company founded by a former Eldorado employee in 2004.

The jury sided with Eldorado following a two-and-a-half-week trial finding that Renaissance “misappropriated Eldorado’s trade secrets, infringed on Eldorado Stone trademarks, infringed on Eldorado Stone’s copyrights, and interfered in the economic relationships between Eldorado and its customers,” according to Eldorado.
