Supreme Court of Illinois Reverses in Reliable Fire, Establishes Traditional Framework for Covenants Analysis

Today, the Supreme Court of Illinois reversed the lower court's decision in Reliable Fire Equipment v. Arredondo, the first non-compete case the Court has taken in five years.

The Court established the three-part reasonableness analysis as described in my previous blog post and held that courts in Illinois are not constrained to consider the two traditional protectable interests. Instead, Courts should examine the employer's legitimate business interest in light of each case's facts.
More on this case as the opinion of the Court becomes available.
