Southwest Stainless, LP v. Sappington, No. 08-5127

In an action for breach of a noncompetition agreement restricting defendants' ability to work with competitors, judgment for plaintiff is affirmed in part where the district court properly distinguished in its findings of fact between plaintiff's general lost profits and profits lost on specific orders.  However, judgment for plaintiff is reversed in part where certain information used by defendants did not qualify as a trade secret because plaintiff disclosed this information to its customers without reservation.
