A federal grand jury in Cleveland, Ohio, has returned a 15-count indictment against Xiaorong Wang charging him with eight counts of theft of trade secrets and seven counts of making false statements to federal agents, said Steven M. Dettelbach, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio.  Wang, age 50, resides in Hudson, Ohio. The indictment alleges that Wang was employed as a research scientist at the Bridgestone Center for Research and Technology in Akron, Ohio, from May 1995 until he was terminated on April 14, 2010. The indictment states that this Bridgestone facility was responsible for conducting research and development for various product lines, including tire, rubber and other polymer-related development. The indictment further alleges that on April 14 and 15, 2010, Wang stole Bridgestone's proprietary trade secret information pertaining to eight projects, formulas and other confidential information. The indictment also charges Wang with making a total of seven false statements to investigating FBI agents on April 16, 2010; May 17, 2010; and December 1, 2010. These alleged false statements include Wang's intention to accept employment at Suzhou University in Suzhou, China, to establish a rheology polymer center.

The marketer of Disney and Marvel hero-themed vitamins for children is refunding more than $2 million. NBTY admitted its vitamins contained only a fraction of the nutritional value it claimed on the packaging. The pills were advertised as containing a dose of DHA that would satisfy 100 percent of a child's daily requirement. However, the Federal Trade Commission said the vitamins contained only minuscule amounts of DHA in some cases. DHA is an omega-3 fatty acid found in fish. The packaging for the vitamins featured characters like Disney princesses, Winnie the Pooh, Nemo and Spider-Man. The vitamins were sold at a number of major retailers and online for between $4 and $8. If you think you may have bought a box between May of 2008 and September of 2010, you can file a claim on the Federal Trade Commission's website until October 12.
