FTC's Ban on Noncompetes Blocked by Northern District of Texas Federal Court


On July 3, 2024, the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas put a temporary hold on the Federal Trade Commission’s Non-Compete Rule, which would ban most non-compete agreements, delaying the Rule’s September 4, 2024, effective date and application as to the plaintiffs and intervenors in that litigation.

The Court intends to rule on the ultimate merits of the action on or before August 30, 2024.
