German Valeo GmbH Sues Nvidia Over Employees Stolen Trade Secrets
Nvidia is facing a lawsuit from car technology firm Valeo, alleging that a senior Nvidia staff member, Mohammad Moniruzzaman, inadvertently revealed stolen tech secrets during a video call. Moniruzzaman, who previously worked for Valeo, allegedly displayed a file containing source code for Valeo’s parking and driving assistance software. Valeo claims he took gigabytes of data when he left the company to join Nvidia. German authorities convicted Moniruzzaman in September 2023, leading to Valeo’s lawsuit against Nvidia for benefiting from “stolen trade secrets.” The lawsuit seeks significant damages and an injunction against Nvidia’s use of Valeo’s code. Nvidia denies awareness of the stolen data until May 2022 and asserts it took prompt steps to protect Valeo’s rights.

Former President Donald Trump’s Truth Social Sues 20 News Organizations For Defamation Asking $1.5 Billion
Trump Media and Technology Group Corporation, the company behind Truth Social, is seeking $1.5 billion in damages from 20 news organizations for erroneously reporting that the social media platform had lost $73 million. The company filed a lawsuit in a Florida state court, claiming the reported figure was an “utter fabrication” and accusing the outlets, including the Guardian and Reuters, of a “deliberate, malicious, and coordinated attack” against Truth Social. The news organizations, including Reuters, later corrected their stories, attributing the mistake to miscounting a $50.5 million profit as a loss. Trump Media & Technology Group alleges a coordinated campaign, while Reuters maintains its commitment to fair and accurate reporting. Truth Social, launched last year as Donald Trump’s alternative social network, has gained prominence after his suspension from Twitter and Facebook.
