ASA Electronics issued an amended claim for fraud and punitive damages against Lippert Components and former ASA employee Vince Smith. Last October, a circuit court judge ruled in favor of ASA and granted an injunction against Lippert and Smith, who violated a non-disclosure agreement and revealed ASA trade secrets after he went to work for Lippert. After a March 26 mediation was unsuccessful, and based on new evidence, ASA issued the amended claim.
Excavation teams at a surface mining facility in Serbia recently discovered three ancient vessels buried in the former riverbed. The largest is nearly 50 feet, with a single deck, at least six pairs of oars and fittings for a sail. Ars Technica reported that archaeologists are fairly certain, but cannot confirm, that the vessels are Roman in origin, as testing data is held up at labs due to the coronavirus pandemic.
