HOUSTON – Tomball-based R.L. Walker Transport, Inc. has sued two former employees for what the company perceives as unfair competition, recent Harris County District Court records show.

Per the complainant, the individuals unlawfully took proprietary information and disclosed said information to third parties.

A jury trial is requested.
