Trade secrets claim summarily dismissed given evidence only supported former employee's use of white pages to identify customers

In Primary Insurance Agency Group, LLC v. Neville Nofar, et al., the plaintiff sued a competitor arguing that it stole customers by hiring a former employee to identify Albanian-American potential customers.  The employee testified that she found the potential customers (only about 20 of the 200 customers the Plaintiff had lost) using the white pages to identify Albanian surnames.  Given the lack of contradictory evidence, the Court concluded that summary disposition of the plaintiff's claim was appropriate, since there was nothing improper about using the phone book--a public domain--to identify potential customers.
