The Court granted an Opposition to Notice of Designation of Action as a Mandatory Complex Business case, ruling that:

This matter appears on the face of the pleadings to involve enforcement of a restrictive covenant contained in a settlement agreement. No additional issues involving the identification, delineation and protection of trade secrets appear from the pleadings and response to the Opposition. Nor does there appear to be an unfair trade practice issue unrelated to the enforcement of the restrictive covenant. Where, as here, the only critical issue is the enforceability of a restrictive covenant, mandatory jurisdiction of the Business Court is not implicated.
