CA Technologies (NASDAQ:CA) today announced it has filed counterclaims against AppDynamics, Inc. and its founders, Jyoti Bansal (“Bansal”) and Bhaskar Sunkara (“Sunkara”), in a lawsuit pending in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California. It is clear that significant portions of the AppDynamics code was written while its founders were CA employees. CA will take every necessary step to ensure that others do not use its code or infringe its patents.
CA is seeking a court declaration that it owns the code written prior to Bansal's and Sunkara's departure from CA as well as any derivative works. CA is also seeking an injunction against AppDynamics prohibiting the misuse of CA's intellectual property and financial damages.
The claims filed today allege that Bansal and Sunkara secretly began to develop an Application Performance Monitoring (APM) product and business to compete directly with CA while they were still CA employees. CA maintains that these actions occurred after CA acquired Wily Technologies, its APM product and its key software engineers in 2006. CA alleges these actions violated obligations Bansal and Sunkara had under agreements with CA, breached duties they owed under law and infringed CA's intellectual property rights.
In April 2013, CA filed a patent infringement suit against AppDynamics, Inc. in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York. CA discovered the facts underlying its current claims during pre-trial proceedings in the New York case.
