Within the last year I left one company for another that deals in the same type of business. At my new position, after repeated request, I provided my new employer a complete list of my previou employers customers.

I'm now being sued by my previous employer. I have receive advice ranging from I shouldn't worry to I better get a good attorney. Does my previou employer have a case? Should I retain a lawyer now or wait until I'm served the actual law suit. I've recieved a Praecipe for writ of summons.



That is proprietary information, secret and you gave away company secrets...

Bad boy......you only take your former employers customer lists when you start you own business, because if you are really good they will follow.

Youve got some explaining to do, also you might want to look for another JOB, becuase you may have to sue your present employer for forcing and threatening you to disclose the information.

As a plea bargain.
