Judge Sides With Bimbo

A quick follow-up on the last post (Inevitable Disclosure: Bimbo Sues Muffin Man): “In his 37-page opinion in Bimbo Bakeries USA Inc. v. Botticella, U.S. District Judge R. Barclay Surrick granted a preliminary injunction, ruling that Chris Botticella, a former senior vice president at Bimbo, cannot start to work for Hostess Inc. because his extensive knowledge of Bimbo’s trade secrets makes it substantially likely, if not inevitable, that he would disclose Bimbo’s secrets to Hostess.”  Read the rest on Law.com.

And here is a copy of the District Court’s Findings of Fact and Conclusions of Law upon which the court granted injunctive relief.  (I plan to comment further when time permits.)
