Meta sues former executive over alleged AI theft

Meta is suing its former vice president of infrastructure over allegations that he stole proprietary human resources data about the company’s top performers, and key information about its data center supply chain partners to bring to his new employer.

In a complaint filed in late February in a California State Court, the software giant alleged that Dipinder Singh Khurana breached contractual agreements, loyalty, and fiduciary duties by taking proprietary, information related to Meta’s data centers, supply chain, as well as employee compensation to a Stealth AI startup where he holds a similar position to what he held at Meta. 

“Khurana was given access to proprietary, confidential, non-public, and highly sensitive Meta documents and information that only a limited set of Meta’s employees can access,” according to the complaint. The complaint added that the unauthorized disclosures would hurt competitive advantage, particularly in areas such as AI, data center technology, supply chain operations, and talent retention.
