Cisco Challenges Enforceability of HP Non-Compete Provision

Cisco has, at least in this first round, has prevailed in knocking out this attempt by HP to enforce non-compete obligations under Texas law against a former HP employee working in Texas who accepted a position in California (a jurisdiction where non-competes are not enforceable) with Cisco. In this particular case, there do appear to be some unique circumstances including the fact that HP went to the Court house in Texas, ex parte, which evidently was viewed unfavorably by the Judge there, especially since Cisco had apparently reached out to HP in an attempt to reach an accommodation on this issue.
