FBI DIRECTOR CHRISTOPHER WRAY WARNS OF CHINESE TAKE OUT OF TRADE SECRETS

BY KEN ROSSIGNOL

THE CHESAPEAKE TODAY

NEWS AND COMMENTARY

This eighteenth episode of the saga of the theft of trade secrets by those associated with Flywheel Digital, Ascential, and three Maryland officials: Deputy St. Mary’s County States Attorney Daniel White, Judge Michael White, and State Police Lt. George White is introduced by FBI Director Christopher Wray. 

News coverage of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Maryland by THE CHESAPEAKE TODAY is recited at the bottom of this article and reveals to the reader the constant theft of secrets of business and government being stolen by the Communist Chinese.  The lawsuit by Compass Marketing against Flywheel Digital lays out, step by step, how the theft of trade secrets has been pirated by individuals and firms to transfer at a huge profit, property of an American company.

THE BASIC CLAIM

This lawsuit seeks redress for extensive, pervasive, wrongful, and actionable misconduct committed by each of the named defendants, including years of covert trade secret theft, that has inflicted grievous financial harm on Compass. Individual Defendants DiPaula and Miller are former Compass executives who were given the opportunity to run the best-in-class electronic commerce (“eCommerce”) marketing arm for Compass. DiPaula and Miller were trusted with, and permitted to immerse themselves in, Compass’s most sensitive trade secret information and proprietary business know-how that Compass had been developing for more than a decade. Unbeknownst to Compass, DiPaula and Miller secretly secured embezzled Compass funds from former Compass directors Daniel White and Michael White, and launched and thereafter operated a competing company, Defendant Flywheel. Flywheel has competed with Compass ever since and has done so by misusing stolen trade secrets and proprietary information while poaching Compass’s clients and leveraging myriad former Compass eCommerce employees. Defendants DiPaula, Miller, Michael White, and Daniel White have conspired to conceal their misappropriation and cover up their actionable misconduct. Their acts in furtherance of this conspiracy continue to present, as set forth in detail in this Complaint.

15. Defendant Flywheel is a Maryland limited liability company licensed to do business in the State of Maryland. Its principal place of business is located at 1801 Porter St., Suite 300, Baltimore, MD 21230. Flywheel is an eCommerce marketing company built using Compass’s stolen trade secrets and proprietary information and know-how, as well as built upon information and belief in whole or in part on funds embezzled from Compass. DiPaula and Miller incorporated Flywheel on September 3, 2014, the day before they both resigned from Compass. On information and belief, since its formation through the present, Flywheel’s Board of Governors and/or registered agents have been comprised by individual defendants DiPaula and Miller, Ascential CEO Duncan Painter, and Ascential CFO Mandy Gradden, as well as non-party individuals Dayna Acevedo, Shiwen Xu, and Rachel McGuckian.
