Rival radiological device makers Elekta and Varian Medical settle a lawsuit accusing the Swedish company of poaching sales reps and trade secrets from Varian.

Elekta (STO:EKTA B) and Varian Medical Systems (NYSE:VAR) settled a lawsuit accusing the Swedish medical device company of stealing trade secrets when it poached sales reps from its U.S. rival Varian.

Varian sued Elekta last year in a Texas state court, accusing the Stockholm-based radiological device maker of swiping proprietary information when it lured a pair of sales reps away from Palo Alto-based Varian.

Today, alongside its annual report, Elekta said that the legal spat between the arch-rivals "has been resolved by mutual agreement by the parties."
