Wrongful termination claimed by engineer, not patent violation

An engineer who says that his patented technology is used in three missile defense systems used by the U.S. Department of Defense told a California news team that he was suing the government, but not for copyright infringement or patent protection. Instead, the man sued for wrongful termination, saying that once his patented technology solved the Raytheon Company's problem with the systems, they no longer had work for him and fired him. He said that his patented solution to the Firefinder, Sentinel and Thermal High Altitude Area Defense Radar systems predated his employment at the company.

Star alleges 'Storage Wars' is rigged, wrongful termination

A former star of the popular reality TV program Storage Wars that's based in L.A. moved forward with his claim that the show was rigged.

He was to have made $25,000 per episode for each of the 26 episodes in the program's fourth season, or $650,000.
