Energy company sues Cypress men over proprietary information
GL Noble Denton International has filed suit against three Texas men, charging them with breach of contract and misappropriation of confidential information and trade secrets.
GL Noble is a project management firm in the oil, gas and wind energy industries, providing services to both onshore and offshore projects.
The defendants in the suit are Vernon Luning, 12351 Longmire Way in Conroe; Larry Pavlas, 15803 Creek Hill Lane in Cypress; and Steven Seat, 16410 Fritsche Cemetery Road in Cypress.
The suit says that the three men left GL Noble but used proprietary information in subsequent dealings, which is a violation of the employment agreement at GL Noble.
Upon leaving GL Noble, the three defendants opened Epic Management Resources at 13103 FM 1960 Road W. in Houston. The suit states that the defendants also convinced a number of GL Noble employees to join them at Epic Management.
GL Noble, located at 1155 Dairy Ashford St. in Houston, is represented by Jay Aldis of Houston.
