The Superior Court of California has lifted a temporary restraining order against the new chief executive of Bebe Stores Inc that had been sought by his former employer Wet Seal Inc.

The restraining order against Greg Scott was granted to Wet Seal after it filed suit against Bebe in late February.

Scott, the former president of Wet Seal's Arden B division, left the retail group to become Bebe CEO in mid-February.

In addition to lifting the restraining order, the court denied Wet Seal's petition for a preliminary injunction restraining Bebe and Scott from soliciting Wet Seal employees for employment and using or disclosing the company's trade secrets.
