Fair Competition News: Save Money. Live Better. But Don’t Go To Work For CVS, Says Walmart

Hank Mullany, former president of Walmart‘s northern U.S. division, reportedly left Walmart to head up CVS‘s retail pharmacy. In response, Walmart sued Mullany (Wal-Mart Stores Inc. v. Mullany, CA No 6040, Delaware Chancery Court (Wilmington) (a copy of the complaint is here) claiming that Mr. Mullany had a noncompete agreement that prevented him from working for CVS.

Apparently the court – on a first read, at least – agreed and issued a temporary restraining order preventing Mr. Mullany from working for CVS until the court could give further consideration of the issue at a hearing scheduled for December 15.

More to come.
