Judge Clears The Way

A Washington-state judge yesterday gave Dr. Kai-Fu Lee the go-ahead to work at Google stating that his job functions would not conflict with the one-year non-competition agreement he currently has with Microsoft.

Back in July when Dr. Lee joined the Google team to help develop their R&D; center in China both Google and Lee were sued by Microsoft who argued that it was in breach of the non-competition agreement Lee had with them (while Google sarcastically points out they sued before having any idea what Lee’s role was to be at Google and thus could not possible know whether there was any violation of the non-competition agreement).

For those interested you can read a profile of Dr. Lee in the San Francisco Chronicle here.
