Case 1:10-cv-00885-LO -JFA


i2, Inc. Files Suit Against Palantir Technologies, Inc. Alleging Misappropriation of Trade Secrets.

Complaint alleging that Palantir Technologies, Inc. schemed to misappropriate i2 trade secrets including software programs and related confidential information. In addition to claims for trade secret misappropriation, the complaint asserts claims for copyright infringement and fraud, among others.

The suit alleges that Palantir built its business in part upon fraudulent conduct and the misappropriation of i2's confidential software and other trade secrets. As detailed in i2's complaint, i2 only recently discovered the scheme to misappropriate i2's confidential software and other trade secrets which began in early 2006 and continues to this day. The complaint asserts that in early 2006, Shyam Sankar, while he was a Palantir employee, approached i2 posing as a representative of a Florida company called SRS Enterprises, LLC to obtain a license to i2's Analyst's Notebook, Analyst's Notebook SDK and other software for the purported purpose of conducting fraud investigations. i2's Analyst's Notebook SDK is a proprietary software development kit that provides software tools and support materials to enable a licensee to develop new software to enhance and extend the functionality of Analyst's Notebook.

" As detailed in the complaint, i2 asserts that the defendants obtained the licenses through trickery and deception as a means of procuring i2's confidential intellectual property for the benefit of Palantir.

The suit further alleges that Palantir, through employees such as Shyam Sankar (Director of Forward Deployed Engineering at Palantir) and Dr. Asher Sinensky (a Forward Deployed Engineer at Palantir), used the confidential i2 software and other trade secrets to assist them in the development of new Palantir software products, utilities and features that were specifically designed to enable Palantir to unfairly, but more effectively, compete with i2.
