GigOptix files amended complaint against M/A-COM Tech and related parties

GigOptix Inc of San Jose, CA, USA (which supplies semiconductor and optical components for high-speed information streaming addressing emerging high-growth opportunities in the communications, industrial, defense and avionics industries) has filed a Second Amended Complaint in the lawsuit that it initiated in Santa Clara County Superior Court in April against five former employees, Silicon Valley-based firm Optomai Inc, and M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc of Lowell, MA, USA (which acquired Optomai in April). 

The amended complaint asserts claims against the former employees for breach of loyalty and breach of employment-related contracts, and asserts claims against all defendants for violation of California’s Trade Secrets Protection Act. 

GigOptix seeks damages and injunctive relief. Although the defendants deny the claims, GigOptix says that it intends to vigorously pursue the litigation to protect its intellectual property and proprietary information.
