Doh!!! ClearOne Trade Secrets Defendant Loses At Trial, Drops His Attorney and Asks for Stay of Judgment - But Is Told "Sorry"
We covered the ClearOne Communications trial victory and $9.7 million verdict against some of its former employees here: http://wombletradesecrets.blogspot.com/2009/04/clearone-clears-97-million-in-trade.html.
It appears that one of those defendants, Lonny Bowers, fired his attorney and decided to take matters into his own hands to file a Rule 60 motion seeking to set aside or stay the judgment against him. Attached at the link above is the trial court's rejection of Mr. Bowers' Rule 60 motion.
It appears that Mr. Bowers claimed that ClearOne pulled a fast one on the court and the jury - that the "HoneyBee" computer code that was determined to be a trade secret of ClearOne is actually in the public domain. It appears that the court doesn't buy what Mr. Bowers is selling and consequently denied his motion.
