A lawsuit and restraining order against Extreme Molding LLC and co-owner Joanne Moon have been dropped and the matter settled amicably, according to the company's lawyer.
Moon's former employer, Saint Gobain Performance Plastics of Wayne, N.J., had filed a complaint in U.S. District Court in Albany on Jan. 10. A restraining order had prevented Moon from working, but was later adjusted by Judge Thomas J. McAvoy to allow Moon to go back to work. St. Gobain had alleged that Moon had violated a noncompete clause.
G. Kimball Williams, lawyer for Extreme Molding and Moon, said that the companies have since resolved their differences and that the lawsuit, along with the restraining order, has been dropped. A lawyer for St. Gobain could not be reached.
Records show that the matter was settled out of court and that the judge on March 28 ordered that the settlement be confidential and the case closed.
