Agilent Technologies, Inc, v. Kirkland, No. 3512-VCS (Del. Ch. Feb. 18, 2010), read 93-page opinion here.This magnum opus by the Delaware Court of Chancery was initially issued under seal but is now available for your reading pleasure.

A longer overview of this case will be provided soon, but in the meantime, I wanted to make this opinion available for downloading. For anyone interested in the latest iteration of Delaware law on misappropriation of trade secrets and the remedies available for breach of the Delaware Uniform Trade Secrets Act, this decision is must reading.

As a side note, students of Delaware law will observe that although not granted by the Court in this case, the trade secrets statute is one of the only bases on which the Court of Chancery is vested with authority to grant punitive damages.
