Motorola recently threw down the legal gauntlet against BlackBerry-creator Research in Motion for approaching more than 40 of their employees. This put Motorola staff in a tough spot, who obviously couldn’t accept the offers without dishing out trade secrets. As a result, Motorola’s seeking $50,000 in damages as well as bar RIM from approaching their workers or technologies. This isn’t the first time that the two have butted heads, and certainly won’t be the last so long as the Motorola Q keeps aiming for the corporate demographic and BlackBerry Connect keeps luring WinMo users to the dark side. If you’re interested, you can see the latest progress in the case from these documents.
