DisputeSoft was engaged as a consulting and testifying expert in March 2019 by RiverPay Inc. in the matter of Citcon USA, LLC V. RiverPay, Inc. et al. in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, San Jose.
In its suit, Citcon, a payment processing company, alleged that former employees misappropriated confidential source code and technical information and used this information to start a competing company.

Before his departure, Shi allegedly created a Dropbox account used to automatically download trade secrets from Citcon’s MySQL database, and he used the account to provide Hua and RiverPay with access to confidential transaction data; customer information; and business development, marketing, and sales plans.
