Texas Uniform Trade Secrets Act and Recovery of Attorney’s Fees

May attorneys’ fees be recovered on a claim that trade secrets were stolen?

Under the Texas Uniform Trade Secrets Act, a court may award attorney’s fees to the prevailing party.  “The court may award reasonable attorney’s fees to the prevailing party if: (1) a claim of misappropriation is made in bad faith; (2) a motion to terminate an injunction is made or resisted in bad faith; or (3) wilful and malicious misappropriation exists.”  Tex. Civ. Prac. & Rem. Code § 134A.005.
