(Bloomberg) -- Motorola Solutions Inc. told a judge in Chicago that a former employee worked as a double agent who helped Chinese rival Hytera Communications Corp. play catch-up on digital-radio technology for walkie-talkies.

Hytera’s attorney, Michael Allan, acknowledged the former Motorola employees -- including one that was temporarily on both companies’ payrolls -- were “bad apples,” but he said any transfer of information was minor and inadvertent. Rather than suing the engineers, Motorola waited years to file suit, after Hytera had become more successful, to get more money in damages, Allan said.

“They want every single dollar that Hytera has earned” from the sales of its radios “going back to 2010, plus more,” Allan said.

Motorola, which sued in 2017, claims Hytera stole secret information related to two-way radios used by utility workers, construction crews and school officials. The technology can enable communication even if radio towers aren’t working properly during natural disasters.

Complaints about theft of intellectual property have been a key issue in President Donald Trump’s trade war with China.

Motorola’s Alper told jurors that the company developed its two-way radios by 1998, and that a decade later, Hytera still hadn’t caught up. Hytera’s chief executive officer lured one Motorola engineer with the promise of 600,000 shares of Hytera stock, Alper said.

But before leaving, one of the engineers spent three months downloading the documents and source code to take with him, Alper said. During that time, he was also being paid by Hytera without Motorola’s knowledge.
