Forest River Inc. v. Heartland Recreational Vehicles LLC
This lawsuit is the fourth pending matter between these parties. The lawsuit revolves around the alleged theft of a company’s full client/contact list. High-tech computer espionage? No. The “sales person then contacted a personal friend of his who was a sales employee at [Plaintiff] and asked that sales employee to get him a copy of the Master List.” D’oh.
Companies, do you have a trade secret policy and the proper mechanisms in place to protect your valuable, confidential information? If not, I can tell you it costs a lot less than a trade secret lawsuit.
