BB&D Attorneys Christopher Bauman and Jason Turk Attain Dismissal and Freedom From Restrictions on Employment for Employee

BB&D attorneys Christopher Bauman and Jason Turk defended an employee against a former employer who sought damages and injunctive relief.  Among other things, the former employer wanted damages and restrictions on BB&D’s client’s ability to contact customers that the employee had worked with during his previous employment.  BB&D successfully argued for an initial Order that stated that the employee was free to contact all customers for the purposes of competing.  Although the employer stated claims for breach of the Missouri trade secrets act, computer tampering violations, and tortious interference, all claims were dismissed without any payment to the former employer and with no restrictions on the employee’s right to employment.
