Columbia Sportswear sued for breaching non-disclosure agreement

A lawsuit was filed yesterday in Oregon against Columbia Sportswear. The plaintiff, Innovative Sports, Inc., is suing Columbia Sportswear, as well as two other companies, for allegedly breaching non-disclosure agreements and developing a type of sportswear that they had originated and branded.

Innovative Sports developed heated clothing that incorporated wearable electronics, and the company met with Columbia Sportswear in several confidential meetings where non-disclosure agreements were in place. According to the lawsuit, Columbia Sportswear ended the growing relationship with Innovative Sports in order to develop their own line of heated sportswear.

In the process of developing this previously trademarked clothing line, Columbia Sportswear breached the non-disclosure agreements and also divulged trade secrets. Innovative Sports is seeking monetary wages as well as an injunction against Columbia Sportswear in order to terminate their production of heated clothing.

When an individual is charged with a crime and accepts the offer of deferred adjudication, they are eligible to apply for non-disclosure after they have completed their deferred adjudication assignment.

Non-disclosure agreement halts harassment victim from talking

Herman Cain has been in the news quite frequently as of late, but not for his presidential campaign. Sexual harassment charges against the Republican have been brought to light by several supposed victims.

One woman who is claiming that Herman Cain sexually harassed her wants to tell the public her story but can’t due to a non-disclosure agreement that she signed after a settlement with the National Restaurant Association. Cain used to be an employee of the National Restaurant Association and the woman is pleading with the company to release her from the agreement so that she can shed light on her story.

Cain initially denied knowing anything concerning the allegations and has since begun to reveal small pieces of information regarding the topic. He still completely maintains his innocence and plans to continue with his campaign as scheduled.

By receiving deferred adjudication for a crime, a criminal record has the potential for non-disclosure.
