TIG Awarded Combined $10.89 Million in Trade Secrets Case Against FusionStorm

TIG Awarded Combined $10.89 Million Verdict in Compensatory and Punitive Damages in Trade Secrets Case against FusionStorm

Jury verdict will help to set standard of conduct for the industry


SAN DIEGO –– IT solutions integrator Technology Integration Group (TIG) has been awarded $9.36 million in compensatory damages and $1.525 million in punitive damages in California Superior Court in a case against FusionStorm, three of its executives, and three former TIG employees. The damages were awarded by a jury in San Francisco last week.
 
In January 2007 TIG filed a lawsuit accusing former employees of misappropriating trade secrets and conspiring with FusionStorm to weaken TIG’s operations in the Tampa, Fla. market including disclosing sensitive pricing, vendor, and company financial information, while still working for TIG and utilizing the company’s computer systems. TIG’s complaint alleged that then Branch Manager Michael Dragoni and other former employees Randy Barber and Charles King were helping FusionStorm solicit TIG employees, divert its business and dismantle its Tampa operations in order to establish  a FusionSorm presence in Tampa.
 
TIG hired Dragoni in 2004 as a Branch Manager who eventually headed up the company’s 13-member Tampa operation. TIG alleged that two years later, Dragoni flew to California to meet with FusionStorm representatives and right before the meeting emailed two years of TIG’s profit and loss statements to Brad Thompson, FusionStorm’s VP of Sales, and Tim Tonges, the company’s COO. TIG also alleged that Dragoni provided FusionStorm with information regarding open quotes and pricing so that TIG customers could be targeted by FusionStorm’s new office. When Dragoni resigned in 2007, he had already secured office space for FusionStorm in the Tampa area. TIG filed its complaint the same day.
