9th Circ. Says Chinese Co. Given Notice In Trade Secrets Row
By Tiffany Hu (August 23, 2018, 4:09 PM EDT) -- The Ninth Circuit has upheld the federal government's service of criminal summons on a Chinese company accused of a trade-secrets scheme, finding that the company was adequately notified through Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan LLP, which had made special appearance of counsel on its behalf.
In a 29-page precedential opinion, the panel on Wednesday denied Pangang Group Co. Ltd.'s mandamus petition, ruling that a California federal judge was correct in finding that the company had actual notice of its criminal summons through attorneys at Quinn Emanuel, who had appeared on its behalf in district court solely to contest service.
