$200,000 verdict upheld where old employer faxed bogus non-compete that caused job loss

In Greenlee v. Godlan, Inc., the Fourth Circuit in a per curiam opinion for the panel of Judges Niemeyer, Williams, and Shedd upheld the $200,000 verdict against the plaintiff's former employer for tortious interference with contract under South Carolina law, where the old employer faxed a copy of an invalid non-compete clause to her new employer, which caused the new employer to fire her.
