Inevitable Impediment

In HP's short-lived lawsuit against its former CEO Mark Hurd, the company suggested that it was inevitable that Hurd would disclose its trade secrets in his new position as co-president of Oracle.

"In his new positions, Hurd will be in a situation in which he cannot perform his duties for Oracle without necessarily using and disclosing HP's trade secrets and confidential information to others," HP said in its complaint.
