US Law: Non-Compete Enforced

In 2008 a  federal judge stopped an Apple Employee working at Apple after an application by IBM.

The employee, a Mark Papermaster the new Vice President of Device Hardware for Apple, only started work a week after the application

Mark had previously worked at IBM, and had signed an “non compete” agreement in 2006. The agreement stated that when he left IBM he would not work at a competitor for at least a year.
