RIM Sues Motorola For Blocking Job Offers To Current And Ex Motorola Employees

On Christmas Eve, Research In Motion filed suit against Motorola alleging that Moto has improperly blocked their attempts to hire current and laid-off employees. RIM is also seeking unspecified damages for what it called “unfair competition” practices by Motorola. Whatever that means.

It should be noted that the two companies had some sort of an agreement that they came to in Feb. to not steal each others employees. Moto has accused RIM of violating that agreement. But RIM has said that the agreement has expired and is no longer enforceable.

I guess RIM will be saying “Hello Moto” in front of a judge in the near future.
