Dr. V. Prods., Inc. v. Rey, 68 Cal. App. 5th 793 (2021)

Dr. V. Productions sued its former employee, Samantha Rey, for misappropriation of trade secrets under the Uniform Trade Secrets Act, breach of fiduciary duty and related claims.  After “significant discovery,” Dr. V. voluntarily dismissed its misappropriation of trade secrets claim.  Rey then filed a motion for an award of attorney’s fees under the UTSA, which the trial court denied.  The Court of Appeal granted Dr. V.’s motion to dismiss Rey’s appeal on the ground that the denial of attorney’s fees is not separately appealable.
