Victory in Trial over Theft of Client List and Computer Tampering
On January 14, 2014, a Manhattan jury found in favor of Sher Tremonte’s clients, an international corporate travel firm and its director, who were sued for misappropriation of trade secrets, unfair competition and tortious interference. The plaintiff, a competing travel agency, alleged that Sher Tremonte’s clients had wrongfully taken client lists and had tampered with its email system for the purpose of diverting business. The jury found that the client lists were not trade secrets and decided in favor of defendants on all claims. Justice Shirley Werner Kornreich of the Commercial Division presided over the trial.
