I guess I was brought up in such a way to only trust your: Spouse and your parents. That's the way I lived my life for the most part, and I consider myself lucky. I know many people don't even have that.

Sorry if the tone of my response made it sound like I felt what he was doing is ok. I do not feel that way, just saying taking him to court would be a waste without something in writing.

Unfortunately, there is nothing you can do. Karma will get him. What he did was not right, but i'm sure it happens all of the time. Even with a poorly written non-compete, there is little you can do if he is just an employee of this other company. If there is ever a next time, make sure you have a lawyer write up the agreement and get it notorized. The verbage will have to say something about having no contact with the customers being sold to you, and that he will not give their information to anyone else. You live and you learn...
