Medsphere sues the Shreeves over sourceforge release

Health IT Strategist Modern Healthcare’s daily IT newsletter, revealed that Medsphere is suing the Shreeve brothers
From the article:

A $50 million, 12-count lawsuit charging misappropriation of trade secrets, breach of contract, breach of duty of loyalty, violations of the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organization Act, commission of computer crimes, intentional interference with contract relations, unfair competition and other complaints has been filed by Aliso Viejo, Calif.-based Medsphere Systems Corp. against the company’s co-founders, brothers Steve and Scott Shreeve.

The suit seems to be over some code deposited on sourceforge against the companies wishes…

Steve Shreeve announced that Jumps and Kickstand source codes were freely available on SourceForge.net, which “came as an unwelcome and startling surprise” to Kizer and other Medsphere executives.
