AFAIK non-compete agreement are forbidden in California. That's why Jobs, Schmidt & C made an illegal agreement not to look for each others engineers. The whistleblower then was Palm CEO, but IIRC it was settled out of court before the class action started.

Thereby, my take is his lawyer behaviour, albeit unethical (but is there anything ethical in the lawyer profession?) was not illegal. He should have complained much earlier. Did he think she would have helped him from the other side? How naive, if so...

Anyway, a quite disgusting situation, including the lawyers fees....
