Summary Judgment Obtained in Breach of Contract and Misappropriation of Trade Secrets Case

We obtained summary judgment on behalf of an individual client and her company in a breach of contract and misappropriation of trade secrets case arising under the Tennessee Uniform Trade Secrets Act. The individual and her company, which sells a cryosurgical medical product, were sued by the individual’s former employer for allegedly misappropriating the former employer’s customer information, quality information, product information, etc. The plaintiff argued that it became aware of this alleged misappropriation through means of an anonymous tip from a concerned customer or vendor. Defendants argued, and the court agreed, that the alleged tip constituted inadmissible hearsay and that there was insufficient evidence of a breach or misappropriation to survive summary judgment.
