Diane Geller was quoted in the Staffing Industry Analysis article "State by State: Best & Worst Legal Locations for Staffing Firms." While the full text can be found in the May 19, 2014, issue of Staffing Industry Analysis, a synopsis is noted below.

The worst states for legal locations are in the West and Northeast, where lawmakers commonly consider regulations to be tools for social change and, consequently, administrators find compliance difficult to staff firms. More likely in these areas than in other parts of the country, judges tend to certify cases for trial that wouldn’t pass otherwise.

“Some states prohibit non-competes by statute and then there are states like New York, where enforcement requires a narrowly tailored agreement so employers usually pay employees not to play," Geller comments.
