Becker Glynn Defeats Motion For Preliminary Injunction

A domestic client of the firm hired a former employee of one of its competitors. The competitor sued the client, claiming that the employee had stolen trade secrets and was in breach of his employment contract. The firm successfully avoided expediated discovery and, at a hearing in the Commercial Division of the New York Supreme Court, defeated the competitor’s emergency motion for a preliminary injunction. The firm subsequently won summary judgment holding that the plaintiff had failed to show that protected trade secrets were involved.
