Timothy B. McCormack, attorney at law, writes about: Inevitable Trade Secret Misappropriation


Timothy B. McCormack, attorney at law, writes about: The only Washington case to mention inevitable disclosure is an unpublished Washington Court of Appeals case,

Additionally, inevitable disclosure was not essential to the Solutec case. The main issue in that case was whether certain edible wax formulas were trade secrets, because the defendants had actually threatened to use the formulas, asserting that they were not trade secrets. See Solutec 1997 WL 794496 at *1, 4 (trial court made a specific finding that defendants had threatened to misappropriate plaintiff's trade secrets). The Solutec decision also does not discuss the inevitable disclosure doctrine directly, it simply cites favorably to PepsiCo in a short two-paragraph discussion.
