Invista Textiles (UK) Ltd and another company v Botes and others

Equity – Breach of confidence. The Chancery Division made rulings in a case concerning several scientists who, having worked for the claimant textiles company, formed their own company. The court held that, although there had been some breaches of contract, there had been no misuse of confidence, in contract or equity. There would be an order requiring delivery up of company property but, in the circumstances, no inquiries as to damages.
