If trade secrets misappropriation claims can be brought by non-owners, what should companies do to manage risk?

by Caroline Simons and Tierra D. Piens | May.20.2020

Last week, we examined the recent Third Circuit decision in Advanced Fluid Systems, which held that a trade secrets plaintiff did not need to be an owner or a licensee of the alleged trade secrets to bring a state law misappropriation claim under Pennsylvania’s UTSA—all that was required was that the plaintiff had “lawful possession” of the trade secrets. In so holding, the Third Circuit added to the weight of the Fourth Circuit’s similar analysis of Maryland’s UTSA in DTM Research, L.L.C. v. AT&T Corp., 245 F.3d 327 (4th Cir. 2001).

Parité salariale

Pay equity is at the forefront of regulatory, political, shareholder, employee, and public concern. 2016 brought an unprecedented wave of new and proposed pay equity legislation and other initiatives at the federal and state level, seeking to address the pay gap. This is also a trend internationally. These initiatives will make it easier for employees and government agencies to bring pay claims against employers and may expose employers to public scrutiny as well as increased litigation risks and costs. While it remains to be seen how the Trump administration will pursue these issues at the ...

California District Court Kicks Out U.S. Women’s National Team’s Equal Pay Claims

by Jill Rosenberg, Jessica R. L. James and Alex Mitchell | May.21.2020

A California district court dealt a blow to the U.S. Women’s National Team’s (WNT) equal pay case on May 1, granting partial summary judgment to the United States Soccer Federation (USSF) in the headline-grabbing case filed last year. The decision dismisses the team’s compensation discrimination claims under both the Equal Pay Act (EPA) and Title VII but mostly leaves intact the WNT’s remaining discriminatory working conditions claims. We previously blogged about the case here.
