The Boulder-based online bicycle consignment shop The Pro's Closet is suing a competitor founded by former employees for breach of contract, theft of trade secrets and civil conspiracy.
In the lawsuit filed last week in Boulder District Court, The Pro's Closet alleges that former employees Benjamin Duke, Jordan Schware and Seth Wealing took proprietary information from the company to competitor The Gear Movement.
Duke and Schware left The Pro's Closet in January 2009, according to the lawsuit. The Gear Movement was founded in February 2009.
Wealing worked for The Pro's Closet from March 2010 to April 2011. In all, six former Pro's Closet employees now work for Gear Movement.
