Fenwick & West Defends Former OptiMight Employee in Trade Secret Case

June 18, 2002

Fenwick litigation partner Rodger Cole successfully defended an ex parte application for a temporary restraining order and motion for preliminary injunction based on OptiMight’s claim of trade secret misappropriation against its former employee Dr. Lucas Hsu. Rodger argued a successful 2019(d) motion for more specific identification of OptiMight’s alleged trade secrets that narrowed the alleged trade secrets significantly. The case was ultimately dismissed with no restraints on employee or new employer, and a complete defense judgment.
