Covad Obtains Key Legal Victory Over Confidential VoIP Customer Lead Information

A federal judge has denied an attempt by Revonet, Inc. to terminate a lawsuit filed by Covad Communications Company contending that Revonet misappropriated Covad’s VoIP customer lead information and sold this information to other customers. The case will now continue on its merits.

“We are very pleased that the Court has allowed us to continue pursuing our objective of holding Revonet accountable for its actions,” said Doug Carlen, Covad’s Senior Vice President and General Counsel. “Revonet apparently sold VoIP customer leads that we generated on our own to other companies, including our competitors.

Because we made a considerable investment in the development of these leads, we felt compelled to take action.” According to its website, Revonet is an “industry-leading provider of sales information products and services” located in New Canaan, Connecticut, with call center facilities in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

Covad filed its lawsuit in the U.S. District Court located in Washington, D.C., in November 2006. No trial date has been set.
