PharMerica, Inc. v. Arledge

Case Date: 03/21/2007
Citation: PharMerica, Inc. v. Arledge, Case No. 8:07-cv-486-T-26MAP, 2007 WL 865510 (M.D. Fla. Mar. 21, 2007)
Court Type: Federal District
Court: Middle District of Florida (M.D. Fla.)
Judge: Federal District Judge: Richard A. Lazzara

Plaintiff moved for a temporary restraining order to protect its trade secrets from further disclosure by a former high-level employee.


The Court granted Plaintiff’s motion for a temporary restraining order. Plaintiff successfully demonstrated a likelihood of success on the merits, as Defendant copied proprietary trade secret information from Plaintiff and then deleted the information from his work computer in clear violation of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, his nondisclosure agreement with Plaintiff, and Florida’s trade secrets statute. Plaintiff also successfully demonstrated irreparable harm, that it would be harmed more than Defendant if the restraining order was not granted, and that the public interest would be served in granting the temporary restraining order.
