Zeldes Haeggquist & Eck, LLP attorneys Alreen Haeggquist and Aaron Olsen successfully defended a former employee through trial in a case brought by his former employer involving alleged misappropriation of trade secrets and breach of contract. Ms. Haeggquist and Mr. Olsen not only helped obtain a verdict on behalf of their client, but persuaded the Court to find that his former employer brought the action in bad faith and award the employee damages, attorneys’ fees and costs.
Ms. Haeggquist and Mr. Olsen fought the case through the employer’s appeal and, on November 13, 2013, successfully pursuaded the Court of Appeal to affirm the judgment in full. See a copy of the opinion here. “This is a well-reasoned opinion that will finally shut the door to a long and drawn-out lawsuit that lacked merit from the start,” said Aaron Olsen. “Our client now has the pleasure of bathing in the vindication of his rights, not to mention a handsome monetary judgment.”
