Litigation Note: ProLogic Drops $25M Trade Secrets Lawsuit

Washington, D.C. – June 9, 2015: Aquarian Systems, Inc. (Aquarian) and two of its employees have prevailed in a trade secret lawsuit filed against the company by ProLogic Inc. On June 5, ProLogic voluntarily dismissed—without a settlement—the remaining claims in its $25 million suit, which accused Aquarian and two former ProLogic employees who became employees of Aquarian of trade secret misappropriation, tortious interference, and breach of contract. The claims in the complaint centered around the alleged misappropriation of software created by ProLogic and delivered to the U.S. Department of State (DoS), to which DoS had a broad license. Additionally, ProLogic alleged that the defendants tortiously interfered with ProLogic's business expectancy by submitting a proposal for, and winning, a new DoS contract, which was established as a small business set aside for which ProLogic was ineligible. Crowell & Moring represented Aquarian in this matter, as well as the individual defendants after the claims against Aquarian were dismissed on May 6, 2015.
