GeoMetWatch Brings Legal Action Against Utah State University and the University's Advanced Weather Systems Foundation

GeoMetWatch announced that it has filed an action in The United States District Court, District of Utah, against Utah State University and its subsidiary corporation, Utah State University Advanced Weather Systems Foundation, alleging breach of contract, misappropriation of trade secrets, unfair competition and violation of Section 43 of the Lanham Act. Also named in the action is Alan E. Hall, Island Park Investments, and Tempus Global Data Inc. The suit alleges the defendants - Utah State University and its subsidiary Foundation - induced GeoMetWatch to disclose extremely valuable business and technical trade secrets surrounding its efforts to develop an advanced, next generation satellite based weather sensing system, thus depriving GeoMetWatch of the unique business opportunity that it had created. The action further alleges that the defendants breached contractual agreements limiting the use and disclosure of GMW's trade secrets, and made false and misleading representations about their own services and about GMW, in an effort to harm GMW and drive it out of business. GMW seeks immediate preliminary and permanent injunctive relief to prevent permanent irreparable harm to GMW's investments and seeks damages for past and continuing harm caused by the defendants' conduct. By way of background, the action details GeoMetWatch's efforts over a six year period to build a comprehensive business plan, financial model, customer lists and an extensive data base of highly sensitive trade and technical secrets that would be invaluable to a potential competitor. The action alleges that Utah State University, in collusion with Alan Hall, conspired to not only steal GMW's intellectual property, but to pull the entire business out from under GMW. Specifically, the action further alleges that the defendants obtained these trade secrets and proprietary information under false pretenses, thus causing irreparable harm to GMW's business and reputation and depriving GMW of a lucrative business opportunity that took GMW years to build.
