Mayo Clinic and Doctor Disagree Over Who Stole Software Secrets

By Kelley Luckstein

A trade secret lawsuit between the world-renowned Mayo Clinic and one of its former doctors is heading to trial after a federal judge in Minnesota denied summary judgment to both parties last week…

 

The Mayo Clinic contends that it owns the software and that the man who helped invent it -- Dr. Peter Elkin -- stole the program's core code from Mayo; gave public speeches about it, thereby revealing trade secrets; and "had made plans with several major companies to commercialize" the software behind Mayo's back.
