Michael J. Betts LLC Client Receives Jury Verdict in Trade Secrets Case

Michael J. Betts

A ten-day jury trial in the United States District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania culminated in a jury verdict in favor of our client, upholding our client’s fudge-making formula as a legally protectable trade secret and awarding damages in the amount of $237,706 against the defendants for trade secret misappropriation and unjust enrichment. At trial, we presented claims on behalf of our client for violations of the federal Defense of Trade Secrets Act, 18 U.S.C. 1836-1839, and the Pennsylvania Uniform Trade Secrets Act, 12 Pa.C.S. 5301-5308. The Court had previously denied the defendants’ motion for summary judgment on these claims. The case is Christopher M. Warman, et al. v. Local Yokels Fudge, LLC, et al., No. 2:19-cv-01224-PLD.
