Discovery Order Regarding Goodyear Trade Secrets Vacated and Remanded

The U.S Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit vacated a district court order compelling the company to disclose trade secrets regarding the composition of its tires in light of the South Carolina Supreme Court's holding, in response to the Fourth Circuit's certified question, that South Carolina recognizes a qualified evidentiary privilege for trade secrets.  The Fourth Circuit remanded the matter to the district court for further proceedings.  [5/25/18]
