STARFIRE SYSTEMS, INC. v. EXTREME ENVIRONMENT MATERIALS SOLUTIONS, LLC, ET AL.
NORTHERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK (SYRACUSE)
Whenever an executive leaves to go to work for a competitor there always exists the possibility of certain information “traveling” with him. These are hotly contested matters, often involving immediate injunctive relief and evidentiary hearings that can lead to a Plaintiff’s loss of trade secrets or the new employer’s loss of a new executive.
Starfire is engaged in the business of developing, manufacturing and selling specialty materials and performance chemicals. Its present chief executive officer is alleged to have gone to work for, or on behalf of, a competitor and is alleged to have misappropriated the trade secrets and confidential information of his former employer.
The lawsuit alleges trademark infringement, unfair competition, cyberpiracy, breach of contract, and misappropriation of trade secrets. The Plaintiff requests the court award preliminary and permanent injunctive relief, transfer of the infringing domain names, an accounting of profits, compensatory damages, exemplary damages, statutory damages, treble damages, and all costs and expenses incurred in the action.
