Lucent case hearings set for Monday; Datang issues denial
Bail hearings for three defendants charged last week with stealing trade secrets from Lucent Technologies will be held Monday, the U.S. District Attorney's Office in the District of New Jersey reports. The hearings originally were scheduled for earlier this week.
The hearings will be before U.S. Magistrate Judge Stanley R. Chesler in the same courtroom where the defendants were charged last week.
Earlier this week, Datang Telecom Technology denied it was involved in the alleged theft. The company had been part of a joint venture with ComTriad Technologies, a company set up by the three defendants.
Datang is a telecom equipment provider in China and part of the Chinese Academy of Telecom Technology, which is government-owned. Datang said legal procedures for setting up the joint venture, DTNET, were not completed nor capitalized. It added that neither it nor the joint venture received Lucent's source code.
