As Nice At Work Sues on Competition Clause Defense Lawyer Says Yada Yada Yada at SDNY

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Jan 5 – A company called Nice at Work has this year sued its former employee Matt Sternberg, and asked that he be fired at his new employer.   

 On January 5 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Gregory H. Woods held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it. 

   There was an argument about a temporary restraining order, going along normally, until Steinberg's lawyer started quoting from the motion and said, "Yada yada yada, give me a break."  

 Judge Woods cut in, saying "This is not a stand up routine... Your approach is flip and not persuasive. Please proceed." 

 The lawyer, not yet listed in the docket, apologized and continued. A limited restraining order was in fact issued, albeit one to maintain the status quo and not share confidential business information.

The case is Nice People at Work, Inc. v. Sternberg, 21-cv-19 (Woods)
