Morrison & Foerster scored a win on behalf of DRS Technologies in the Eastern District of Virginia, where Raytheon Company sued our client, as well as BAE Systems, for trade-secrets misappropriation, seeking a preliminary injunction. Raytheon contended that BAE had improperly disclosed trade secrets to DRS, which in turn had misappropriated Raytheon’s technology.

After full briefing, the district court judge denied Raytheon’s motion. The alleged misappropriation involved an advanced sighting system for a light tank. BAE Systems manufactures the tank; Raytheon and DRS produce competing sighting systems.

Partner Dan Chudd argued the case.
