Texas Becomes the 48th State to Enact the UTSA

A small group of lawyers from the Texas State Bar, including Bill Ramey of Ramey & Browning, drafted and pushed through the Texas legislature the Uniform Trade Secret Act in Texas. The Act was signed by Governor Rick Perry on May 3, 2013, effective September 1, 2013. Of the law, Bill Ramey said, “Companies will find greater uniformity under the law with a Uniform Trade Secret Act.”  The Act can be found at http://legiscan.com/TX/text/SB953/id/829258/Texas-2013-SB953-Enrolled.html.
