Got Docs, LLC v. Kingsbridge Holdings, Inc., Slip Op., No. 19 C 6155 (N.D. Ill. Feb. 2, 2021) (Guzman, J.).

Judge Guzman denied defendant Kingsbridge’s summary judgment motion and granted plaintiff Got Docs’ summary judgment in this trade secret case involving manage-document business.

The parties disputed whether plaintiff Got Docs’ managers were authorized to file suit. But even if the managers had stepped down from their roles, Get Docs’ Operating Agreement required that managers remain until their successor was appointed. So, while Get Docs’ managers may have resigned, they had not been replaced and, therefore, had authority to initiate the suit.
