Thomas' English Muffins, that is. An executive of Thomas' (which is actually owned by a Mexican conglomerate) took a position at Hostess. Thomas' accused the exec of double-dealing for months and secreting away a dozen files onto a thumb drive – and got an injunction against him preventing him from taking the new job.
I like this story because it's a great example of a 'real-world'
scenario that triggers interesting e-discovery issues. You've got the usual stuff, of course, but it gets into privacy; specifically, how much protection may an executive with a confidentiality agreement expect when negotiating with the competition?
I suppose the exec might raise the "Twinkie Defense"…(dammit…I almost made it through without making a confection-related joke…)
