Bank’s TRO suit going back to court


Huntington Bank and Home Savings Bank will report back to U.S. District Court Northern District of Ohio Eastern Division on Nov. 9. Huntington requested a temporary restraining order after the bank says three newly hired employees of Home Savings, who formerly worked at Huntington, used proprietary information to solicit Huntington customers to go to Home Savings.

After a conference with Huntington and Home Savings, the court waited to make a ruling or have a further hearing on the restraining order to allow both parties to complete an agreement.

Under the agreement, the employees involved also are not to solicit current Huntington employees to leave their employment. Home Savings will hire a third-party vendor to review all computers used by the employees to determine what, if any, Huntington information is contained on their computers. If Huntington information is found, it will be provided to Huntington and destroyed by the third-party vendor. By Nov. 8, the employees are to return any Huntington information.

After doing craft shows for many years and being asked if they had a store, owners Ken and Barbara Lewis decided to open one and be available to the customers more than just once a year at a show.
