Zynga (ZNGA) is suing Alan Patmore, the former general manager for CityVille, for allegedly stealing trade secret. Zynga claims Patmore, who now works for rival Kixeye, backed up 760 sensitive files covering subjects such as revenue projections, monetization plans, and new game designs, the day before he left. Patmore is one of dozens of Zynga execs to have recently abandoned the struggling social gaming leader.
