Francis Pileggi Discusses Delaware Chancery Court’s Denial of Motion to Dismiss for Lack of Indispensable Party in Non-Compete Case

Francis G.X. Pileggi of Eckert Seamans Cherin & Mellott, LLC, discusses NuVasive, Inc. v. Lanx, Inc., C.A. No. 7266-VCG (Del. Ch. July 11, 2012), in which the Delaware Court of Chancery considered a claim that the defendant company improperly persuaded employees of plaintiff company to work for the defendant, inducing the employees to breach various agreements they had with plaintiff and to misappropriate plaintiff's trade secrets and other proprietary information. The issue before the court was whether the employees, who were not within the jurisdiction of the court, were necessary parties to the litigation. The case is discussed in detail in Francis' blog post on the Delaware Corporate & Commercial Litigation Blog.
