HP Suing Mark Hurd To Protect Trade Secrets

Illustration for article titled 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.
