This article was originally published in Clinica
Ophthalmic device company Carl Zeiss Meditec and its rival Optovue are embroiled in a legal wrangle over the alleged leaking company secrets by a former Carl Zeiss employee. Carl Zeiss Meditec filed a lawsuit on June 7, accusing the employee of -transmitting confidential and proprietary information" to Optovue while he was still under Carl Zeiss' employment. In response, Optovue countersued, claiming, among other things, that Carl Zeiss' accusation that the company engaged in acts of unfair competition was -controversial". Carl Zeiss said it will vigorously defend itself against all Optovue's charges.
