Just one question: Did you ask Kurfürst not to publish the material before you sent it to him?
That's an etiquette question ... I'm not a lawyer, but I don't think you have much of a legal claim. I don't see what actual damage the publication would do to you either.
Of course, I respect your position not to share anything in the future after one case did not work out as you had planned.
