Yahoo Sues Ex-Staffer Claiming She Gave Secrets to Writer

Yahoo is suing a former employee for allegedly leaking confidential information to an author that wrote a book about the company and its CEO Marissa Mayer.

Yahoo claims that Cecile Lal, a former senior director of product management, broke a confidentiality agreement when she leaked proprietary information to the journalist that she learned during "FYI" meetings with Mayer, according to a complaint filed in state court in San Jose, California.
