Minnesota Supreme Court Addresses Employment Non-compete Agreements

March 4, 2015

The Minnesota Supreme Court today issued a decision in Sysdyne Corp. v. Rousslang, A13-898. On appeal, Bill Davidson and Peter Stiteler represented TechServe Alliance, a national trade association of information technology and engineering staffing and solution firms. TechServe Alliance appeared as an amicus curiae, or “friend of the court,” and expressed its concerns as to the scope and application of an “advice of counsel” defense in Minnesota as the basis for a justification defense in response to a tortious interference of contract claim.
