EEOC v. SEVERN TRENT SERVS., INC., 03-2631

District court must reconsider whether to enjoin defendant from enforcing the nondisparagement clause contained in its consulting agreement with a former employee. The current injunction lacks a deadline and is overbroad; it may encourage the former employee to testify beyond the legitimate scope of plaintiff's inquiry.
