National Fish & Seafood trade secrets case against Tampa Bay dismissed

For months, Tampa Bay has been requesting NFS to produce evidence of trade secret theft, the company said.

A federal judge in a Massachusetts court has dismissed National Fish & Seafood's (NFS) lawsuit against Tampa Bay Fisheries that accused former employee Kathleen Scanlon of stealing trade secrets.

United States District Court Judge Leo Sorkin dismissed the case March 8.

The ruling said NFS and Tampa Bay Fisheries agreed to the dismissal. Defendants on Tampa Bay's side included its parent company, Red Chamber, along with NFS employees Robert Paterson, Mark Pandolfo and Mark Marsh.

No other details were released regarding the dismissal.

NFS filed a document with the court around a month earlier, asking the court to deny Tampa Bay's motion to "compel NFS to identify a date by which it will begin producing documents" proving former employee Kathleen Scanlon unlawfully acquired NFS’ confidential information and trade secrets.
