United States District Court, Western District of Louisiana, Monroe Division
February 2, 2015
CHARLES S. BELL
L.P. BROWN COMPANY, INC.
KAREN L. HAYES, MAG. JUDGE
ROBERT G. JAMES, UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
For the reasons set forth in this Court’s Ruling, IT IS ORDERED, ADJUDGED, AND DECREED that Plaintiff Charles S. Bell’s Motion for Summary Judgment [Doc. No. 6] is GRANTED. The forum selection clause contained in the non-compete agreement between the parties is DECLARED null and void under La. Rev. Stat. 23:921A(2). Under Louisiana law, the non-compete agreement is geographically overbroad and is thus DECLARED unenforceable.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED, ADJUDGED, AND DECREED that Defendant L.P. Brown Company, Inc.’s counterclaim is DISMISSED WITH PREJUDICE.
