Atmel Corp. v. Vitesse Semiconductor Corp.
Atmel Corporation (Plaintiff), a semiconductor organization in Colorado Springs, Colorado, documented suit against previous representatives Robert L. West, Patrick H. Jenkins, and LattieAlejo (defendants) and alsoVitesse Semiconductor Corporation (Vitesse) (defendants), looking for injunctive relief to forbid the individual litigants and Vitesse from "raiding" Atmel's work constraint. Not long after leaving Atmel for Vitesse, the individual workers furnished Vitesse with names of other Atmel representatives the organization might need to procure. Atmel contends this disregarded the "non-solicitation" provision in the employment contract between the individual representatives and Atmel which provided that an Atmel worker would not, for a time of one year taking after the end of the business relationship, either specifically or in a roundabout way, request, select, or endeavor to influence any individual to fire his or her work with Atmel. The trial court allowed Atmel's ask for an order and restricted the individual litigants from requesting or selecting Atmel's present representatives to work for Vitesse. Also, the trial court's request kept Atmel workers from starting contact with Vitesse in regards to business potential outcomes. Defendants appealed.
