King County Superior Court Jury Endorses Competition in the Durable Medical

Equipment Marketplace

SEATTLE, April 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Seattle law firm Williams Kastner secured a defense jury verdict for its clients today in a business litigation case involving claims of misappropriation of trade secrets and tortious interference with a business relationship or expectancy. The case was MP Medical, Inc. v. Philip Wegman, Warren and Ruth Ann Hall and Halls Drug Center, Inc., King County Superior Court, Cause No. 06-2-25495-3, Seattle Courthouse, Judge Julie Spector presiding. After a 10 day jury trial in King County Superior Court presented by Williams Kastner attorneys Arley Harrel and Jake Downs, a unanimous verdict was returned in favor of the defendants. The Judge had previously dismissed on summary judgment a non-competition agreement ruled unenforceable under California law.

The case is unusual in that a jury trial of trade secret disputes is rare in King County and Washington State. The jury determined there was no misappropriation of trade secrets. The verdict endorses competition in the market for durable medical goods in the underserved rural markets of central and eastern Washington.
