AMD Alleges Former Staffers Stole 100,000 Confidential Documents

AMD has made a very bold allegations against some former executives. AMD alleges that for previous high-level executives stole tens of thousands of sensitive documents before leaving AMD to work for rival Nvidia. AMD filed a complaint this week and charged former VP of strategic development Bob Feldstein, former manager Manoo Desai, and former manager Nicholas Kociuk with downloading more than 100,000 company files to external hard drives in the six months leading up to their departure.

The company also accuses the same three men and manager Richard Hagan of attempting to recruit AMD employees after joining Nvidia. AMD says that the attempted recruitment violates their no solicitation of employees agreement.

AMD says that forensic analysis of the former workers computers found that they transferred "obviously confidential, proprietary, and/or trade secret materials relating to developing technology and/or highly confidential business strategy" to external hard drives. AMD says the specific content of the material transferred remains unclear. AMD doesn't appear to be accusing Nvidia receiving these documents at this time.
