Broadcom Sues SpaceX Over Engineering Hires

Irvine-based Broadcom has sued Hawthorne-based SpaceX, saying that SpaceX has been raiding the company for key engineers, and stealing its proprietary technology. In a lawsuit filed last week, Broadcom named both SpaceX and five engineers, who it says violated confidentiality agreements they had signed, saying that they took knowledge gained through a project that Broadcom helped SpaceX with last year.
