PITTSBURGH — A former employee is suing Novo Nordisk Inc., a New Jersey corporation, citing alleged breach of contract.
Laureen Temple filed a complaint on Sept. 29 in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania against Novo Nordisk Inc., alleging that the New Jersey corporation has attempted to stop the plaintiff from working on a medicine for hemophilia A with another company.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that she suffered damages from being prevented from working with another company. The plaintiff holds Novo Nordisk Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly improperly attempted to enforce a non-compete agreement with her.
The plaintiff seeks a declaration that the non-compete agreement does not prevent the plaintiff from working at Genentech and does not overlap with her territory from the defendant, court costs and any further relief the court grants. She is represented by Steven W. Zoffer and Michael P. Flynn of Dickie, McCamey & Chilcote, P.C. in Pittsburgh and Marc R. Lewis and Nicolas V. Saenz of Lewis & Llewellyn LLP in San Francisco.
