The following is a recent order in very contentious non-compete dispute in the Middle District of Florida, where we are defending our clients against claims that they breached various non-compete and non-solicitation agreements.
On February 7, 2014 a hearing was held on the preliminary injunction. But that hearing was not an evidentiary hearing. After that hearing, principally on the basis of MTA’s declarations, the Court issued a sweeping preliminary injunction.
We appealed that ruling to the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit. The Eleventh Circuit vacated the injunction and remanded the case for a full-blown evidentiary hearing.
After engaging in substantial discovery, we proceeded to a second hearing – this time an evidentiary hearing – in mid-November 2014. After that hearing, both sides filed briefs arguing their proposed findings of fact and conclusions of law.
A few days ago, the Court issued its ruling denying MTA’s request for an injunction. This is a tremendous victory for my clients and for justice. The order is below. If you are faced with the prospect of defending a non-compete case or fighting a preliminary injunction anywhere in the state of Florida – whether federal or state court – please contact my office. This is what we do.
