Frequently, preliminary injunctions are often sought in cases where you have an employee and it is your belief that that he has taken your companies trade secrets. For example, a sales person may decide to walk away with your customer lists. The hurdles for obtaining a preliminary injunction is high because it is such a drastic remedy.
One of the issues that you must establish in order to have a judge sign off on your injunction is showing that your employee had access and unfairly took your customer lists or other trade secrets. You should look to provide evidence in the form of email correspondence and images of your former employee’s hard drive.
