A case in which John McLafferty and Erica Tennyson successfully defended a Canadian citizen and his company against an action for injunctive relief was named one of Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly's "Most Important Opinions" during the first half of 2011. The case, Maine Pointe, LLC v. Starr, et al., centered around a request for a preliminary injunction to enforce non-compete provisions in an independent contractor/consultant agreement. The United States District Court in Boston denied the request because the basis for personal jurisdiction was ruled dubious and the plaintiff had not shown "a likelihood of success on the merits."
