GE Accuses Subcontractor of Stealing Trade Secrets

From the Albany Times Union, a story about General Electric suing a former supplier from Rotterdam, Feuz Manufacturing, for allegedly stealing trade secrets. The claim comes on the heels of a suit by Feuz against GE for unpaid bills filed in New York state court. The GE trade secrets claim was filed in federal court.

Feuz made parts that GE Energy in Schenectady (NY) used in the manufacturing of gas turbines, including pins, rotors and other turbine parts.

GE claims that Feuz used GE's engineering designs to make parts that it sold to GE competitors and seeks $2 million in damages based on the value of the parts sold to GE competitors by Feuz.
