UPS trade secret spat against 5 of their pilots

Earlier in October, the United Parcel Service (UPS) had reason to believe some of their pilots found and shared strategic plans about a UPS aircraft based on confidential trade secret information in a PowerPoint. These private plans were indicated to have the goal of influencing company strategy and financial decisions in the future.

Lawsuits against Equifax are already underway. Who can sue?

Almost as soon as Equifax announced its unprecedented data breach, two proposed class actions were filed in federal court. One was filed by a group of consumer rights attorneys who had just won the right to sue Yahoo for another large data breach. More suits are almost certain to follow.

Raptor versus raptor

Many fans of the Jurassic Park movies felt that amongst all the dinosaurs, the raptors stole the show from their larger reptile counterparts. What they lacked in size, the "clever girls" made up for in strategy and ferocity.

When business litigation is on the table, what happens next?

In our last post, we talked about a contract dispute between Charter's Spectrum and Fox Networks Group over the channels carried by Spectrum in the wake of a changing contract and a rebrand by Spectrum (once Time Warner Cable).

Ford being probed after patent infringement allegations

The U.S. International Trade Commission announced recently that it will launch a probe into Ford's hybrid electric cars and their parts. The probe is occurring after two other companies filed claims against Ford that the motor vehicle giant infringed on their patents. Those two companies, Paice LLC and Abell Foundation Inc., have called for a limited exclusion order and a cease and desist. The ITC will move forward with the patent infringement probe.

Lawsuit against Netflix proceeds, but with some claims removed

In 2010, Netflix was on the precipice of a major popularity explosion. It was shifting from a DVD-via-mail company to an online streaming company. This would prove to be one of the most critical decisions the company would make in its brief existence, catapulting it to a new stratosphere of success as a media giant.
