Challenge

Our client, Roscid Technologies, Inc., is a leading manufacturer of sophisticated analyzing equipment for the gas and humidity industries. A competitor, Edgetech Instruments, Inc., accused Roscid of misappropriating trade secrets, filing a complaint in superior court seeking damages and a preliminary injunction.

Solution

The L&A litigation team moved quickly. Within days, they assessed the complaint and filed briefs opposing the motion. Arguing the case in court, the team presented significant evidence proving that the “chilled mirror” technology at issue is generally known and available outside of Edgetech.

Result

The court denied Edgetech’s motion for a preliminary injunction, finding that the company failed to demonstrate a likelihood of success on the merits. A week later, Edgetech voluntarily dismissed its complaint against Roscid.
