Court of Chancery Limits Noncompete Agreement
Edix Media Group Inc. v. Mahani, C.A. No. 2186-N (Del. Ch. December 12, 2006).
This decision is noteworthy for its careful analysis of what relief is appropriate for a breach of an agreement not to compete. The Court distinguished between the broader duties owed by employees from those more limited duties owed by independent contractors. The relief awarded was the product of a very specific analysis that tailored that relief to the harm proved to have been inflicted.Share
