YELM, Wash., July 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- On Friday, June 28, 2013, Judge Gary Tabor of the Thurston County Superior Court in Washington heard motions for summary judgment by both parties in the lawsuit of JZK, Inc. v. Virginia Coverdale. Each side submitted pleadings arguing that the case could be settled as a matter of law rather than proceed to trial.
Judge Tabor agreed, noting that the relevant facts were not in dispute. In his ruling, Judge Tabor noted that the defendant had not sufficiently established the points of law in their favor, while also noting that JZK, Inc. had more than adequately done so. He found the Conditions of Participation to be reasonable and legally binding. He stated that protecting one's proprietary information is an important concern that may be addressed in a contract and that RSE's contract was "sufficient to prevent this type of disclosure."
Coverdale had agreed not to disclose the school's information and techniques when she signed the contract. As a result, Judge Tabor granted JZK, Inc.'s motion for summary judgment, ending the case. There will be no trial. Tabor also made permanent a preliminary injunction imposed on Coverdale which prohibited the release of the initial video she posted, as well as any other proprietary material from the school.
"I am elated that the Court saw this was a simple case of a breach of contract," said JZ Knight, President of JZK, Inc.
Under the Conditions of Participation she signed, Coverdale promised to pay JZK, Inc. their attorney's fees and the court costs. And while she may appeal Judge Tabor's decision within the next 30 days, there are a number of high hurdles she must face if she chooses to do so.
