Poach-gate Update: Collusion Details To Come

Bloomberg reports that Lucasfilm, Pixar, and other Bay Area which were hoping to dimiss the class action lawsuit must proceed:

Google Inc. (GOOG) and Apple Inc. (AAPL) were among seven technology companies that must face a lawsuit claiming they violated antitrust laws by entering into agreements not to recruit each other’s employees, a federal judge said.

But the bigger news is this:

The decision yesterday requires the defendants to produce documents describing the agreements and permits lawyers to take depositions, Saveri said. “We get to see what really happened,” he said, adding that damages in the case could amount to hundreds of millions of dollars.

If you have any info that might help I’d encourage you to contact the plaintiff attorneys at Lieff Cabraser.

Soldier On.
