In Yahoo accused of poaching speech engineers CNet says:
A California court has temporarily barred about a dozen engineers hired by Yahoo from working on interactive speech technology at the search engine after the company they recently left filed a lawsuit accusing Yahoo of trying to steal trade secrets.
A Santa Clara County Superior Court order issued on Wednesday said speech technology company Nuance Communications was likely to prevail on the merits of the case regarding misappropriation of trade secrets and unfair competition, among other claims. The order also said Nuance would suffer "great and irreparable injury" if the employees were not blocked from doing work on speech technology at Yahoo.
