Following Trade Secrets Litigation

It’s All Greek To Them

Silicon Valley/San Jose Business Journal is reporting that Language Line Services Inc. and Tele-Interpreters, LLC, a competitor in the language interpretation industry, has sued Voiance Language Services for misappropriation of trade secrets and customer information.

Voiance has allegedly hired an ex-employee of Language Line who had possession of Language Line’s and Tele-Interpreter’s trade secrets.

Key graph:

The suit says Voiance has used trade secrets it got from its new hire “to cut short the otherwise long and uncertain process that would have been required for identifying, contacting and enticing Tele-Interpreters’ customers.”
