A former government of a Yonkers army contractor stole hundreds of thousands of dollars value of commerce secrets and techniques to offer to a competing firm, in response to a federal lawsuit.
Crestwood Know-how Group (CTC), which sells digital elements to the USA army, to aerospace and protection corporations, and to different governmental businesses and contractors, sued its former Vice President Patrick Dunn late final month.
In accordance with the lawsuit, Dunn forwarded 37 “safe emails” containing confidential shopper info to his private G-Mail account, which is towards firm protocols, insurance policies and coaching. The price of the knowledge was estimated in extra of $5 million.
The corporate made the discovery on Sept. 19, in line with the lawsuit.
A day later, the company learned Dunn had moved to Maryland. CTG officials had reason to believe Dunn was going to give the confidential information to his son, Scott Dunn, who owns a competing company called Beltway Electronics Company in that state, the lawsuit says.
Dunn refused to return and destroy the stolen information, which includes customer names, contact information and preferences, among other information, and return a company-issued cellphone, according to the lawsuit.
He was fired on Sept. 21, the lawsuit says.
“Due to the sensitive nature of CTG’s business, CTG goes through great lengths to secure its trade secrets and other confidential information,” the lawsuit says. “This information derives independent economic value by not being accessible, through proper means, to competitors …. which can profit from its use or disclosure.”
CTG is asking the court for an injunction and damages against Patrick Dunn for violating the Defend Trade Secrets Act of 2016, misappropriation of trade secrets, breach of contract, theft, violation of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act and unfair competition.
