CytoDyn, Inc. v. Amerimmune Pharm., Inc., B187661
In suit claiming unjust enrichment based on the alleged misappropriation of plaintiff's patents and trademarks, award of attorney's fees is reversed where the trial court erred in awarding attorney's fees under a provision of the Uniform Trade Secrets Act, as the complaint cannot be read as alleging a claim for misappropriation of trade secrets. The court also erred in concluding that attorney's fees were recoverable under the indemnification clause of a licensing agreement.
