Coca-Cola Trade Secrets Case -- The Denouement

It's over. I'm talking about the inevitable appeal of the conviction of Joya Williams who was convicted last year of stealing Coca-Cola's trade secrets and trying to sell them to Pepsi.

The Eleventh Circuit pretty quickly disposed of Williams claims of legal error, none of which related to trade secrets per se.

The opinion does, however, present as good a summary of the conspiracy and it's unraveling at the hands of the FBI as you are likely to see.

(A tip of the hat to Andrew Shane at Bloomberg for bringing this to our attention. Thanks Andrew.)
