HelloThis is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard.So the old employer is suing for a non compete and is alleging she took confidential information such as names and contact information for clients of the former employer? Is that correct?Please tell me what state and also how long has this co worker now been working for you? Have you any contact or business dealings with any of the contacts the former employer is saying she brought to your company?What information can I provide for you?
Thank you.If there was not a non compete, and she is not your employer, but a private independent contractor, I cannot see the basis for a lawsuit against you.
I suggest, you can consider filing a Motion to Dismiss because there is no breach of a non compete and you have no idea how she gets her contacts for marketing purposes.
