A judge hands Mako Surgical an injunction against Blue Belt Technologies and ex-Mako sales vice president Jeff Gellman, ending a breach of contract lawsuit between the robotic surgery companies. Mako Surgical (NSDQ:MAKO) won an injunction restricting a former sales executive's ability to work for rival Blue Belt Technologies in a breach of contract lawsuit leveled between the robotic surgery companies. Ft. Lauderdale-based Mako sued Blue Belt and Gellman in February, alleging that they breached his contract, including non-competition and non-disclosure pacts, according to court documents. Blue Belt allegedly targeted rival companies' sales managers, according to the documents, which also accuse Gellman of stealing trade secrets.
