A small Schaumburg software firm sued earlier this week by electronics 
giant Motorola fired back Thursday, saying the accusations against it do 
not compute.

"We - are adamant that the allegations contained in the lawsuit brought 
by Motorola as they relate to Lemko are completely false," said Faye 
Vorrick, vice president of business operations for Lemko Corp.

Motorola accused Lemko of being the beneficiary of stolen trade secrets 
taken by several former Motorola employees, some of whom also worked for 
Lemko, the Motorola suit alleges.

One of the former Motorola employees, Hanjuan Jin of Schaumburg, has 
been charged criminally with theft of trade secrets after being 
authorities said he was caught at O'Hare International Airport trying to 
board a plane to China with hundreds of Motorola documents and $30,000 
in cash, her indictment charges. Jin has pleaded not guilty.

Motorola's federal lawsuit, filed Tuesday, went a step further, saying 
Jin and three other former Motorola employees, Xiaohua Wu of Kildeer, 
Xuefeng Bai of Buffalo Grove and Xiaohong Sheng of Vernon Hills, took 
trade secrets for the benefit of Lemko. The suit accuses Wu of giving 
her husband, Shaowei Pan of Kildeer, some of the secrets. Pan is the 
chief technology officer of Lemko.
