We first reported about this case here: http://wombletradesecrets.blogspot.com/2008/01/staffing-firm-aerotek-sues-former.html.
Well, defense attorneys at Sacramento's Porter Scott law firm are reporting a "no cause" verdict from the jury in a complete victory for the defendants in this employee defection litigation that raised trade secret misappropriation issues. Apparently this case has been tried twice and Aerotek, a large staffing company owned by the owner of the Baltimore Ravens, has filed a notice of appeal.
That said, we decided to run this write-up because trade secrets cases do not routinely go to trial and the lead defense attorney, Jennifer E. Duggan, obviously did a nice job on this one. While we do not routinely link our readers to write-ups generated by other attorneys or law firms, we note that Ms. Duggan and her firm represented their client on a pro bono basis as things got expensive and this story is worthy of us bending our rule.
Job well done, Ms. Duggan.
