Sentencing in Duracell Trade Secrets Case

From Newsday, a follow-up to our earlier story here concerning theft of trade secrets from Duracell in Connecticut.

Former Duracell employee Edward R. Grande, 49, of Seymour, Connecticut was sentenced last week in U.S. District Court in Bridgeport to five years probation. He was also ordered to pay a $7,500 fine and perform 200 hours of community service.

According to the story, Grande, who worked as a cell development technologist, copied and downloaded computer research about Duracell's AA batteries and sent it to two Duracell competitors. Neither of those competitors had requested or solicited Duracell's trade secret information, and both of the competitors sent the information they received from Grande back to Duracell.
