Icam Technologies Corporation et al v. Ebco Industries
Counsel for the plaintiff in an action claiming breach of confidence against the defendant.
Counsel for the plaintiff in an action claiming breach of confidence against the defendant. The plaintiff had created a proposal for the development of a high technology manufacturing facility for modern airplane parts. The proposal was based entirely on information available to any member of the public but it had been assembled in such a way that generous government funding was virtually assured. The proposal had been presented to the defendant on a confidential basis with a view to a joint venture or partnership. Instead the defendant submitted on its own behalf an almost identical proposal, secured the funding, and proceeded with the development of the facility. Judgment was awarded to the plaintiff and upheld on appeal.
