Online retailer Amazon.com and high street giant Wal-Mart have settled their legal battle out of court.
Last year Wal-Mart sued Amazon, accusing it of poaching Wal-Mart employees in order to steal some its retail business trade secrets. Wal-Mart sought to block Amazon, as well as Internet retailer Drugstore.com, from using knowledge of some of its proprietary tracking systems in their businesses. Last month Amazon hit back with a countersuit accusing Wal-Mart of refusing to allow its employees to look for work elsewhere.
No damages will be paid by either party, but the settlement requires Amazon.com to reassign some former Wal-Mart employees to different tasks than their assignments at Wal-Mart. In addition any Wal-Mart property still in the possession of any former Wal-Mart associates or vendors must be returned.
