In late March, Ellen Chen Yeh, a former employee of Texas Instruments, was found not guilty of trade secrets theft on all counts.
The charges stemmed from the FBI seizing a flash drive on which several documents and files containing information about Texas Instruments from Yeh in 2005 while she was traveling to China. In 2008, Yeh was charged with “three counts of knowingly stealing and misappropriating TI trade secrets.” Upon returning to the U.S. in 2013, Yeh began her trial in early March, 2014.
It was argued that Yeh had the documents and information in order to be prepared for any future employment at Texas Instruments.
