BlackBerry Sues To Prevent Employee Defection To AppleAs rats are prone to jumping off sinking ships, so apparently are BlackBerry executives.

Not so fast, says BlackBerry.

According to a report in The Guardian, BlackBerry has actually sued their own senior vice-president for software, to try to prevent him from fleeing to Apple.

According to the the report, the Blackberry executive, Sebastien Marineau-Mes, was bound to a contract that required him to give 6-months notice.

Marineau-Mes was offered the position of “vice president of Core OS” by Apple.

BlackBerry said “It is unfortunate that we had to take this step, but we will do whatever is necessary to ensure that employees honor the agreements they make with us.”
