Trade Secrets & Cheese

From the North Colorado Business Journal, a story, following up to our earlier story here in March, concerning a judgment in favor of Bingham Hill Cheese Co. for $550,000 in damages, exemplary damages and attorneys' fees in a trade secrets lawsuit filed against a competitor, Morning Fresh Cheese Co. The case was filed in Bellvue, Colorado.

The judge found that Morning Fresh Cheese Co. hired Brad LaRocco, a former cheese maker at Bingham Hill, with the intention of making and selling Bingham Hill's award-winning cheeses. While employed at Bingham Hill, LaRocco had signed an agreement he would not disclose their recipes or make their cheeses elsewhere.
