James M. Hinshaw and Reva D. Campbell Represent AmTote International Inc. in Closely Watched Trade Secret Misappropriation Case
BGD partners James M. Hinshaw and Reva D. Campbell are part of a team representing the horse racing tote inventor and developer AmTote International Inc. in a closely watched trade secret misappropriation case that is attracting national attention.
In its complaint, AmTote says Kentucky Downs and three company leaders are in breach of contract with AmTote for using confidential information about its “totalisator” pari-mutuel betting system to form a competing company, Encore Gaming LLC. Kentucky Downs then terminated the AmTote contract and awarded it to the startup using AmTote’s trade secrets, AmTote said.
Kentucky Downs and the other defendants have denied liability, and the case is in the early stages of pleadings and a preliminary injunction. Stay tuned for additional details.
