Opera has already settled a lawsuit against former employee Trond Werner Hansen. Hansen was accused of taking trade secrets and proprietary information from Opera and giving them to Mozilla after he left the company. While Hansen says that the lawsuit has been settled, he can't specify the details.

But I'm very happy it's over and look forward to being able to focus on my music and other projects again.

 

Opera also confirmed that a settlement was reached, but would not speak specifics:

 

I can confirm that the case against Trond Werner Hansen has been dropped by Opera by reaching an agreement which has been satisfactory to both parties.

 

We previously reported about this lawsuit when it was first filed. At the time, Opera alleged that Hansen provided information to Mozilla that he wasn't entitled to give. Hansen, meanwhile, contended that he didn't break any laws or contractual obligations.
