Kinetic Concepts, Inc. announced that it has sued Innovative Therapies, Inc. and three of its principals, all former KCI employees. KCI accuses Innovative and its prinicipals of stealing trade secrets, violating confidentiality agreements, converting KCI technology, and conspiracy. Neither a KCI release nor media reports mention the three principals by name, and a Google search turns up nothing. The release just says that they were "involved in various aspects of the company's proprietary technology" while with KCI. KCI is a leader in advanced wound-care systems and has gained a lot of respect within industry in recent years. Obviously, it is serious about protecting that status.
