Case Development - Jorge Salva and Bill Cagney Secure Preliminary Injunction in Employment Litigation Matter
AUGUST 13, 2012

Windels Marx recently secured a preliminary injunction for Orbis International Corp. d/b/a Fama Sales Company ("FAMA"), a leader in the sale, repair, and maintenance of commercial espresso coffee machines.

The injunction enjoins defendants Espresso Coffee Direct LLC and Anthony Christy, a former FAMA employee, from: (i) canvassing any of FAMA's customers for espresso machine sales and repairs, and other coffee related business; and (ii) and from disclosing or furnishing to anyone, the names and addresses of any FAMA's customers or its other business information retroactive to May 9, 2012.

This action remains pending in the New York State Supreme Court and arises out of the alleged exploitation of FAMA's customer relationships and misappropriation of its customer files. FAMA seeks damages and permanent injunctive relief for claims of breach of an employment agreement, misappropriation of trade secrets, tortious interference with contract and prospective contractual relations, violations of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, 18 U.S.C. ยง 1030, unfair competition, conversion, and breach of common law duty of loyalty.

Jorge Salva (Associate, New York) and Bill Cagney (Partner, New Brunswick) are serving as counsel to FAMA. Learn more about our work in employment litigation.
