Law360: Fox Nears Order Blocking Netflix From Poaching Execs

November 25, 2019

Law360 reported that Fox, which is represented by O’Melveny, just gained significant footing in its executive poaching battle with Netflix. The California state judge presiding over the matter is leaning towards granting Fox an injunction, which will block Netflix from “poaching executives who have signed up to fixed-term employment contracts.”

“The idea that an employee can breach a contract without consequences is absurd,” lead O’Melveny partner Dan Petrocelli said in court on November 25. “If the injunction is issued, I think the illegal campaign will end.”

The O’Melveny team also includes partners Molly M. Lens, David Marroso, and Leah Godesky.
