NuVasive's ongoing legal battle with Lanx Inc. over the defection of a slew of its former sales reps continues with a lawsuit filed against 3 former reps in New York.


NuVasive Inc. (NSDQ:NUVA) opened another front in its ongoing war with rival Lanx Inc., accusing 3 former sales reps of defecting to Lanx and taking trade secrets with them.

The lawsuit accuses Michelle Kirby, Blake Bednarz and Jason Gotham of breach of "intentional and malicious violations of their duties of loyalty to NuVasive, misappropriation of NuVasive's trade secrets, and violations of their post-employment obligations," according to documents filed with the U.S. District Court for Western New York.

At's 1 of at least 2 lawsuits filed against former reps who now work for Lanx by San Diego-based NuVasive, which makes spinal surgery devices.
