Zaloom Addresses Noncompete Agreements in Law360
Moore & Van Allen's Triangle office Employment Member John Zaloom was quoted in Law360's piece "NY Noncompete Ruling Shows Suing 1st Isn't Enough" on January 11. The article discusses a New York appeals court's refusal to dismiss Aon Corp.'s corporate raid suit against former executives, despite the fact that they sued in California first.
“'It's pretty clear that the filing of the lawsuit in California was part of the strategy in moving the business from Aon to Alliant,'" Zaloom said. “'Everybody knows what California thinks about noncompete agreements. Now New York has drawn a line in the sand on the other side of that. It will be interesting to see how other judges treat this issue going forward.'"
