HP Suing Mark Hurd To Protect Trade Secrets

Mark Hurd, the former HP CEO who was ousted last month amidst allegations of sexual harassment, just got a new job title: Co-President of Oracle. Shortly thereafter, he got slapped with a civil complaint from his former employer who says that his new position will necessarily require him to divulge HP trade secrets:

In his new positions, Hurd will be in a situation in which he cannot perform his duties for Oracle without necessarily using and disclosing HP's trade secrets and confidential information to others.

Can't catch a break, this guy. [HP via TechCrunch]
