Case Conclusion Date:February 15, 2008
Practice Area:Contracts / Agreements
Outcome:Non-Compete Agreement Invalid
Description:Defendant Renee Lambert signed a non-compete agreement with her former employer, Century 21. After terminating the relationship, Century 21 brought this action against her to restrict her from competing as a real estate agent. I successfully argued on the Defendant's behalf to have the non-compete agreement declared legally null and void, based on the agreement being over broad. Our client represented herself pro se on appeal. The trial court decision was affirmed, and the appeal went in her favor.
