Court Of Chancery Upholds Power To Enjoin Employment

Posted In Business Torts

NuVasive Inc. v. Lanx, Inc.,  C. A. 7266-VCG (July 11, 2012)

Litigation to restrain the employment of former employees is often complicated by jurisdictional issues. This decision resolves some of those issues by holding that a Delaware court may restrain a Delaware corporation from employing a former employee of the plaintiff even when that employee is not himself subject to the jurisdiction of the Delaware courts.

This decision, coupled with the enforcement of the choice of Delaware law clauses in other employment decisions, means that Delaware is a preferred forum for such litigation.
