MGLaw's Joe Kelly breaks down a recent Tennessee Court of Appeals decision he says might significantly expand the state's definition of a trade secret.
For purposes of illustration, assume a Tennessee company maintains a password-protected document listing the name of every country in Europe and its respective capital. Then assume that Jack, an employee of the company, emails the list to himself on his last day of work and then uses it to form his own competing-business just 6 days later. Jack could have obtained the names of the countries and capitals from the internet, but he chose to rely on the list instead. Does the list constitute a trade secret? Under Keymon, the answer is maybe.Read why here.

Larry Coleman's appeal to review TNInvestco documents will get its day in court a bit quicker than the norm. The Nashville appeals court last week granted his motion for an expedited hearing of his appeal of a Chancery Court ruling denying public access to documents showing how participants in the TNInvestco program were selected. Coleman said he expects to have a docket date within the next 30 days or so, as opposed to a potentially year-long wait. "It's a lot faster, and of course what's nice is [the court says] this is worth looking at," Coleman said. "We feel good about it." For the background on the case, click here and here.

The Tennessee Court of Appeals has ruled that the grandfather exemption of state zoning laws doesn't apply if land is in a redevelopment district. At issue was a billboard owned by Lamar: The company lost the original location when TDOT expanded a road and when it tried to relocate the billboard, Metro said no can do because the property was in a re-dev district. Williamson County Developer doesn't see the difference in a zoning change — under which Lamar would have been allowed to keep its billboard — and a re-dev designation.
