BRATTLEBORO >> A lawsuit filed by G.S. Precision against one of its former employees was recently dismissed with prejudice.

According to documents filed with the District Court for the District of Vermont, G.S. Precision accused Edward Hewey of stealing trade secrets when he voluntarily left his job in February 2015 and went to work at Sisson Engineering in Northfield, Mass. Hewey, who lives in Spofford, N.H., became a G.S. Precision employee when the company purchased Knappe & Koester in Keene, N.H.

G.S. Precision also claimed Hewey had solicited other G.S. Precision employees to come to work for him in Northfield, and that he encouraged a former employee to email him confidential documents.

In late May, attorneys for G.S. Precision and Hewey filed a stipulation of dismissal with prejudice, meaning a confidential agreement had been reached between the parties and both agreed to not pursue further legal action.

Attorneys for both sides declined to comment on the agreement.
