Successful Defense of Trade Secrets Case

January 2009

Mike Tanner successfully represented the defendant in the Circuit Court of Colbert County in a case arising out of insurance agents leaving their employment with one agency and obtaining employment with a competing, independent agency. The former employing agency sued, claiming that the agents misappropriated trade secrets and improperly used those trade secrets to unfairly compete. After a week long trial, the trial judge granted a motion for judgment as a matter of law in favor of the defendants on January 30, 2009.
