Court hearing today in Ferrari secrets case
Ferrari lawyers will appear in a British court today to ask that a previously granted injunction barring Mike Coughlan, the now-suspended chief engineer for McLaren, from revealing any information obtained from Ferrari and, particularly, information contained in Ferrari documents found when Coughlan’s house was searched last week.
It is expected that the request will be granted. The previous injunction was issued as an emergency order. British law requires a hearing at which both sides to the controversy are entitled to appear before such an injunction can be extended to continue during pending litigation.
There are, however, rumors about the nature of the documents, previously described as totaling about 500 pages. It is said that the material not only includes specifications and engineering drawings, but also manuals containing information about how the team operates.
