Practice Pre-trial or post-judgment relief. The first defendant resigned from his employment with the claimant and the claimant sought to enforce the terms of certain contractual post-termination restrictive covenants and covenants relating to confidential information. The claimant had previously obtained an interim injunction in relation to the first defendant's activities and applied to continue the injunction. The principal issue in the action was whether the first defendant had signed or had otherwise agreed to be bound by the written contract on which the claimant relied. The Queen's Bench Division, on established principle, continued the injunction and ordered a speedy trial.
