Trial Victory: Call & Jensen Obtains Complete Victory Against $9M Trade Secrets Case
Call & Jensen’s attorneys recently obtained a complete defense verdict for their clients after a three-week jury trial in a trade secrets action in the Orange County Superior Court. The plaintiff, a reprographics company, was represented by two AmLaw 100 firms. The plaintiff alleged that its competitor and one of its departing employees misappropriated trade secret information relating to customer lists. Prior to trial, Call & Jensen prevailed on a summary adjudication motion as to all but one of plaintiff’s causes of action. At trial, the jury returned a complete defense verdict for both defendants on plaintiff’s sole remaining cause of action for trade secrets misappropriation. The Plaintiff claimed $9 Million in damages at trial, including damages for alleged willful and malicious misappropriation. Call & Jensen also successfully rebuffed the plaintiff’s motion for a new trial, and prevailed on a motion to collect attorney’s fees in the full amount requested for Call & Jensen’s clients. The team consisted of Mark Eisenhut, Gina Miller, Sam Brooks, Jacqueline Beaumont, and paralegal Mariam Yusuf.
