Apple asks court to dismiss A123 lawsuit over battery hires
A123's complaint said that, "It appears that Apple, with the assistance of defendant [Mujeeb] Ijaz [a former A123 worker now at Apple], is systematically hiring away A123's high tech PhD and engineering employees, thereby effectively shutting down various projects/programs at A123." In Apple's request for dismissal, it said, "Apple hiring five A123 employees, without more, does not indicate improper means or motive to support a claim for tortious interference or 'raiding.'"
While nothing official has been released, the speculation is that Apple wants the A123 workers under its roof because it is working on an electric car.
