Eaton to pay Triumph $147.5 million to settle trade secret lawsuits that sparked judge scandal

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Wednesday, June 18, 2014 8:30 PM EDT

Eaton Corp. says it will pay Triumph Group $147.5 million to settle trade secret litigation that became ensnared in judicial tampering.

The companies announced the settlement Wednesday.

The dispute was born in 2004 when Eaton sued what was then Frisby Aerospace, claiming Frisby hired away six engineers who stole trade secrets used to make hydraulic pumps and motors for aircraft.

Federal criminal indictments against the engineers were dismissed in 2012.

Frisby, which was based in Clemmons, North Carolina, is now part of Triumph Group of Berwyn, Pennsylvania. Triumph will dismiss Frisby's countersuits under the settlement.

Eaton sued Frisby in 2004 in state court, and a scandal ensued when it was revealed Eaton lawyers were paying former Hinds County District Attorney Ed Peters to influence then-Hinds County Circuit Judge Bobby DeLaughter.
