Ikon Office Solutions Inc v. Robert Brad Kolacinski et al

2:11-cv-01382
February 14, 2011
Federal Court
California
Central District of California (Western Division - Los Angeles)

Ikon Office Solutions Inc. ("Ikon") filed a notice of settlement in this case on September 23rd, 2011, but details of the settlement are currently unknown.

Ikon sued two former employees, John Kolacinski and Robert Hornbeck, along with their current employer, Myriad Litigation Solutions LLC, for allegedly stealing client contacts and trade secrets. Ikon Legal Document Services, a division of Ikon Office Solutions, provides litigation support to law firms and in-house counsel. According to the complaint, Kolacinski and Hornbeck coordinated their November 2010 resignations from Ikon to go to work for Myriad, a direct competitor, and copied sensitive business information, such as pricing and contract details, onto flash drives before leaving the office. Ikon alleges that this was done in direct violation of nondisclosure agreements that the employees signed while under its employ.

Ikon filed a motion for Preliminary Injunction on February 17, 2011, but withdrew its Motion on March 28, 2011.
