Employment Contract of service. The Queen's Bench Division upheld a judge's injunction, applied for by the claimant, the former employer of the first defendant, who had been on garden leave and wished to commence working for the second defendant. The claimant had amply demonstrated its legitimate business interest in the protection of its confidential information, which required the protection provided by the garden leave injunction.
