Court of Chancery Enforces Non-Compete Agreement
Hough Associates Inc. v. Hall, C.A. No. 2385-N (Del. Ch. January 17, 2007).
While it is common for the courts to enforce non-compete agreements against the signatories to those agreements, it is less common for third parties to get dragged into the enforcement as well. Here, when a non-party to the agreement knew of its terms, actively assisted in the violation of the agreement and would itself have profited from that violation, the Court of Chancery had little pause in holding the agreement should be enforced against that third party.Share
