Citadel, Cox Settle Birmingham AE Noncompete Case
January 25, 2010 at 4:36 AM (PT)
A settlement has been reached in the lawsuit by CITADEL against COX RADIO and DON LEO, a former CITADEL/BIRMINGHAM Account Executive now with COX, for breach of contract. The parties moved to dismiss the case before Judge INGE JOHNSON, with terms undisclosed.
LEO left CITADEL, where he sold sports advertising packages, for COX in NOVEMBER, and CITADEL contended that he had a six-month noncompete in his contract preventing him from working for a competing company in the market. LEO denied that his employment with COX violated his agreement with CITADEL.
