September 30, 2016 – Plaintiffs Davol Inc. and C. R. Bard, Inc. sued ex-employee, Antionio Cancel, for breach of his employment agreement and misappropriation of trade secrets.  Plaintiffs allege, inter alia, that while Mr. Cancel was on a medical leave of absence from Davol, but still employed by Davol, he provided services to a competing business that distributes PreveLeak, a product that will compete with Davol’s forthcoming Tridyne product, and Mr. Cancel has failed to return company property upon his resignation.

The case is captioned Davol Inc. and C. R. Bard, Inc. v. Antionio Cancel, and is pending in the District of New Jersey, 99-cv-nj795.
