   U.S. Court of Appeals Case No:  16-3679
                          and No:  16-3872
   U.S. District Court for the District of Minnesota - Minneapolis    
   [PUBLISHED] [Loken, Author, with Murphy and Colloton, Circuit Judges] 
   Civil case - Contracts. The district court did not err in finding 
   defendant had not breached the parties' joint development agreement by 
   terminating the agreement after the project failed to develop a 
   commercially viable oven; defendant did not breach the parties' mutual 
   confidential disclosure agreement by disclosing to a third party, after it 
   had terminated the joint development agreement, public information 
   defendant acquired while the joint development agreement was in effect; a 
   test oven did not qualify as confidential information covered by the 
   nondisclosure agreement; as defendant did not breach the nondisclosure 
   agreement, the district court did not abuse its discretion by refusing to 
   permit plaintiff to discover information which might have been relevant to 
   damages for breach; the district court did not err in concluding defendant 
   had not established that it owned the cooking process and its patent.
