Appeal in Virginia Trade Secrets Case

From the Danville (VA) News: This one's a little opaque, but it's from nearby enough that we ought to report it.

Robin Tomer, the wife of a Danville City Councilman, filed an appeal to the Supreme Court of Virginia against a jury decision that found her liable on a Virginia Trade Secrets Act claim brought by her former employer, Romar Medequip. The company makes wheelchairs, lifts, ramps, etc.

Apparently, Tomer took documents with her when she left for a new employer. Romar Medequip was awarded $175,000 in damages by the jury in the February trial.

According to the article, in March, Romar’s attorneys, Glenn Pulley and W. Huntington Byrnes, filed a motion asking for an accelerated hearing because Tomer and her husband, Danville City Councilman Adam Tomer, transferred ownership of their home between the time of the verdict and the judgment.
