Judge Agrees to Preliminary Injunction On Behalf Of Lear Capital, Inc.
MSK obtained a preliminary injunction for its client, Lear Capital, Inc., in a hotly contested trade secrets dispute. The Court issued a blanket injunction prohibiting Lear’s competitor, Gold Silver Group, LLC, from soliciting customers on the basis of a proprietary list Lear purchased at auction. The list had belonged to one of Lear’s competitors, Merit Gold & Silver, which was forced to liquidate. Lear alleges that Gold Silver Group’s founder, Terrence Plotsky, and certain former Merit employees, absconded with portions of the list while Merit was winding down.
“We were very pleased with the Court’s ruling,” said MSK Partner Seth Pierce. “Gold Silver Group and its founder, Mr. Plotsky, are unrepentant and continue to cause irreparable harm to Lear. The preliminary injunction is just the first step in bringing this matter to a successful conclusion.” Lear is represented by Seth Pierce (partner) and Brian Ragen (associate). The case is pending in the Los Angeles Superior Court. Case No. BC565342
