Federal prosecutors are asking to disqualify Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe and partner Randy Luskey from representing a former Jawbone employee accused of taking company trade secrets to rival Fitbit.

In a motion filed Aug. 3, Assistant U.S. Attorney Amie Rooney, the lead government lawyer prosecuting trade secret theft charges against Orrick client Katherine Mogal and five other former Jawbone employees, wrote that Orrick and Luskey are conflicted since they previously represented Fitbit and Mogul’s co-defendants in the investigation and in prior civil litigation with Jawbone.
