Hello and welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** it will be my pleasure to answer your question.

If they forged your signature that is a crime. However, if you actually signed a non-compete, then you are still bound by it, even if your employer is not presenting a copy of the version you actually signed. The forgery is a completely separate matter. It's not as though you can present the actual signed version to somehow get out of the lawsuit because your employer also presented a forgery. All you would be producing is actual evidence of the agreement that you violated.
