Can't we all just play nice?
Zynga, the maker of the popular Facebook game "FarmVille," and Playdom just settled their heated lawsuit over trade secret theft allegations. Last year, Zynga sued Playdom, alleging that four former Zynga employees stole trade secrets and then joined Playdom. The four employees were Raymond Holmes, David Rohrl, Martha Sapeta and Scott Siegel. Playdom is the maker of "Mobsters" and "Sorority Life." Playdom was acquired by Disney in July for $563 million.
Holmes was sentenced to 10 days in jail and a $4,000 fine for destroying and withholding evidence relating to the case.
