Coke Secrets Trial Begins

The trial of one individual in the Coke trade secrets case began today. (see Atl. Jrl Constitution here).  Two others previously plead guilty after being charged with trying to sell trade secrets to Pepsi for 1.5 million dollars. (background here and here).  Assistant U.S. Attorney Randy Chartash, an experienced attorney, is presenting the government's case.  The case may rest on the credibility of the witnesses who testify against the former secretary, and defense counsel in opening statement provided a preview of what some of the problems may be with that testimony. (see here).
