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.
