Quick Defeat of Trade Secret Claim; Anti-SLAPP Defense Leads to Dismissal

CDF clients, a regional bank and certain of its employees, were accused by a large national bank of hiring certain of the national bank's former employees and conspiring with them to take the national bank's trade secret information. The national bank spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on an investigation and sought immediate injunctive relief in the trial court. We defeated the requests for injunctive relief and brought a motion under California's Anti-SLAPP laws freezing all discovery and seeking dismissal, which the court awarded.
