ERJ staff report (DS)
Knoxville, Tennessee -- The judge presiding over allegations of industrial espionage at Goodyear by two former Wyko employees has said the images at the centre of the allegations will not be made public.
It is alleged that the former Wyko employees took seven photographs of a particular piece of equipment at Goodyear's Topeka plant, in breach of a clear no photography rule. US Magistrate Judge C. Clifford Shirley, Jr. has ruled that seven images at the heart of the case might contain confidential information and should not, therefore, be released to the public. The jury, the court, court personnel and the parties involved will be able to see the images.
