Patricia Adkins Ins. Agency, Inc. v. State Farm Mut. Auto. Ins. Co., 146 Cal. App. 4th 526 (2007)
The Court of Appeal granted declaratory and injunctive relief to independent contractor agents of State Farm who challenged certain trade secret and non-solicitation restrictions that State Farm sought to impose upon the agents’ employees. The agents challenged the restrictions on the ground that they constituted a breach of the independent contractor agreement between them and State Farm. The Court agreed with the agents and granted declaratory and injunctive relief in their favor.
