Facebook entries claimed Perkins took sensitive data from Anne Porter.
"This is correct," said Porter. "Debbie Perkins did steal the database from Anne Porter Properties' Hout Bay office and installed it on a Lola Kramer Properties computer. On March 15, we obtained an Anton Piller order from the High Court in Cape Town to search the Lola Kramer Properties premises. The data was found during this search and deleted. The matter has been settled out of court."
Lola Kramer, however, hit back, saying Perkins was taught to manipulate the copyright of digital showhouse pictures while employed by Anne Porter.
"The dispute between the two companies has been settled, with no damages claimed," she said.
