A.R.M.S Inc, makers of the SIR rail system, have successfully sued Stephen Troy (Troy Industries ) in the Massachusetts Federal District Court for theft of trade secrets. The jury awarded A.R.M.S $1.8 million in damages.
Richard Swan, the president of A.R.M.S.® Inc., said, “We are pleased that the jury upheld our trade secret rights and determined that our former employee and his company should not profit from the theft of our trade secrets.”
I wonder what the implications of this will be for Troy who supplies the rail system for the Ruger SR-556.
