retail news in context, analysis with attitude

Starbucks announced late last week that it has resolved its lawsuit against its former executive, Paul Twohig, who it charged with breaching a non-compete clause when he went to work for Dunkin’ Donuts. According to the company, Twohig has agreed to complete his training at Dunkin’ donuts but won’t actually start working there until January 15, 2010, and also has pledged not to reveal any Starbucks trade secrets. Starbucks also will get $500,000 in compensation.
