Phoenix Communications v. Marquardt

Plaintiff's Memo in Support of a Temporary Injunction (Noncompete Agreement)


The Defendant in this case had an employment contract containing a noncompetite clause with a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Plaintiff. The subsidiary assigned the Defendant's contract to the Plaintiff. The Defendant claimed that the Plaintiff lacked standing to enforce the agreement between the Defendant and the subsidiary. The Plaintiff argued that the Defendant who is party to a noncompete agreement has no interest in the form of business that the Plaintiff operates, and that the subsidiary and the parent company had an identity of interest such that enforcing the agreement was proper. The memorandum also addresses the proper standard for the enforceability of a covenant not to compete in the State of Tennessee.
