Non-compete clauses out in California; USA next?

drfuchs (599179) writes "The non-competition clause in that employment agreement you signed is null & (void*), says the state Supreme Court of California. Better still, the San Francisco Chronicle opines that the US Federal courts are likely to fall in line with the decision. Turns out it wasn't a high-tech case at all; just a CPA who had worked for the accounting firm Arthur Anderson (now-disgraced due to their complicity in the Enron case).

Glad we've got that cleared up after all these decades."
