Hewlett-Packard Company v Mark V. Hurd

Civil Complaint


Hewlett-Packard is suing its former CEO, Mark Hurd, alleging he violated a confidentiality provision of his severance agreement by accepting a position with rival Oracle.

HP claims that Mark Hurd will not be able to "perform his duties for Oracle without necessarily using and disclosing HP's trade secrets and confidential information to others."

HP is seeking "immediate injunctive relief to protect its trade secrets and confidential information from Hurd's threatened misappropriation pursuant to Civil Code section 3426.2(a) and to require Hurd to honor his legally binding trade secret protection agreements with HP."
