Court Dismisses Staples and Guardian Auto Glass Non-Compete Lawsuits
April 24, 2013

The legal battle between Guardian Auto Glass and Ken Staples over a non-compete agreement the former employee had signed has been dismissed in Eastern District of Virginia, Alexandria Division.

In the latest move by the court recently made public, U.S. District Judge Claude Hilton writes, "There does not appear to be any justiciable case or controversy before this court because the six-month non-compete period has expired. Therefore, it is hereby ordered that the plaintiff's [Guardian Auto Glass] motion to dismiss the defendant's counterclaim is granted, the plaintiff's voluntary dismissal is granted and this case is dismissed."

Guardian Auto Glass filed suit against Ken Staples last year saying Staples had signed a non-compete agreement and then accepted employment with Glass America after leaving the company.

Staples soon responded by filing a counterclaim alleging that the agreement prevents him from future employment opportunities.
