Irving Shipbuilding suing Davie shipyard, alleging confidential info was taken
HALIFAX - Halifax-based Irving Shipbuilding has added the Davie shipyard in Quebec as a defendant in its lawsuit against one of its former employees who it alleges took confidential company information.
Irving's statement of claim with the Nova Scotia Supreme Court has been amended to include Davie, where Jared Newcombe now works as a senior executive after resigning from the Irving shipyard last year.
Irving alleges in its lawsuit that Newcombe copied documents and electronic records that contain sensitive company information and gave some or all of that information to other Davie employees.
In a statement of defence, Newcombe denies that he breached confidence and says the information wasn't proprietary because it was comprised of his work and was derived from other industry sources.
The allegations have not been proven in court.
Davie did not return a request for comment.
