Texas Becomes 48th State to Enact Uniform Trade Secret Act

On May 2, 2013, Texas Governor Rick Perry officially signed the Texas Uniform Trade Secret Act (“TUTSA”) into law. The act will replace Texas common law, effective September 1, 2013, and apply to all trade secret misappropriation claims filed thereafter. Texas became the 48th state to adopt some form of the Uniform Trade Secrets Act, leaving New York and Massachusetts as the only remaining holdouts.
