Google Employee Required To Hand Over AdWords Account Details
We obtained documents on a court order that the judge issued in the Jeremy Schoemaker case against a Google employee for trademark infringement. Both Jeremy and the defendant filed motions, in which the court ordered the defendant to hand over the historical data of his AdWords account, amongst other items.
The court order, which is embedded below, gives Jeremy the right to conduct jurisdictional discovery prior at this point in time. Which means he can subpoena Google, the Googler and his ISP for information related to the case. Technically, I believe, this means Jeremy can be granted access to the historical data found within the Google employee’s AdWords account, plus access to any traffic data related to the trademark, ShoeMoney.
