In NuCar Consulting, Inc. v. Timothy Doyle, the Chancery Court recently determined that a “prospective client list” satisfied the definition of a trade secret under the Delaware Uniform Trade Secrets Act and that because a former employee did not return it, and used it wilfully against his former employer, the court awarded attorneys’ fees under the statute as well as the amount determined to have been received from clients on the list. The factual details can be found in the opinion issued on April 5, 2005. The court determined that the ruling would have been the same even if a “termination agreement” were not enforceable as a “non-compete”, due to the statutory definition of a trade secret and the manner in which the list was compiled and maintained.
