Ex-AMD Workers at Nvidia Lose Bid to End Trade-Secrets Suit

Former employees of Advanced Micro Devices Inc. lost a bid for dismissal of claims that when they joined competing chipmaker Nvidia Corp. they disclosed trade secrets and urged ex-colleagues to follow them.

U.S. District Judge Timothy Hillman in Worcester, Massachusetts, today rejected a motion to dismiss claims including misappropriation of trade secrets and breach of contract. The judge did grant a request to throw out a claim of unfair competition.
