Episode 12 of Fairly Competing is out and we discuss the high profile Wisk Aero litigation in California.
In this episode, Ben, Russell and I explore the decision by U.S. District Court Judge William Orrick in Wisk Aero LLC v. Archer Aviation Inc. Readers will remember that I wrote about this case last year. The case provides some interesting lessons for lawyers seeking a preliminary injunction in a trade secret case, including that compelling circumstantial evidence alone — i.e., a former employee downloading 5,000 documents and invoking the 5th Amendment — may not be enough to get you an injunction.
