Documents "Filed Under Seal" in Eaton Aerospace Trade Secrets Case in Mississippi

By Todd

We've been following this intrigue-filled trade secrets lawsuit pending in Mississippi and the non-trade secrets elements of it:

Seems there are a lot of "sealed" documents being filed in this case that is currently on hold while the court permits the defendants to discover and file evidence regarding Eaton's allegedly improper use of a local Mississippi attorney, Ed Peters, in the case. The defendants allege Eaton hired Mr. Peters to improperly influence the former judge on the case, Bobby DeLaughter. Peters and DeLaughter went way back to a time when Peters was actually DeLaughter's mentor. DeLaughter has since pled guilty to obstruction of justice charges and has been removed from the bench. Eaton Aerospace denies ever improperly retaining or improperly using Peters in their trade secrets case.

We'll keep a watchful eye on this one.
