Preliminary Injunction Entered After Texas Federal Court Concludes Ex-Employee “Inevitably” Will Disclose Trade Secrets

An employee entered into non-compete and confidentiality agreements with his employer.  Following his resignation from that company, he went to work for a competitor.  His job functions and territory with both employers were similar.  In a suit for violation of the non-compete and confidentiality agreements, a Texas federal court held recently that — absent an injunction — disclosure to his new employer of his former employer’s confidential information was inevitable.
