Research in Motion Says Motorola Can’t|Stop It From Hiring Laid-Off Workers

CHICAGO (CN) - While Motorola is laying off thousands of workers as its wireless business struggles, it is trying to prevent Research in Motion, a prosperous company, from hiring "any Motorola employees, including the thousands of employees Motorola has already fired or will soon fire," Research in Motion claims in Cook County Court.

Research in Motion says Motorola sued it in September to try to keep it from hiring any Motorola employee. And it claims that in that lawsuit, Motorola disingenuously tried to expand a non-solicitation agreement the two companies entered into "for the limited purpose of exchanging confidential information for use in certain discussions that, by the terms of the NDA, are themselves confidential," to apply to the hiring of Motorola workers, or laid-off Motorola workers.

Research in Motion is represented by O'Connell & Ryan.
