    While I agree with the court‘s analysis in this particular instance, it seems that there are a number of other courts in New York, such as the Second Circuit, that have taken a different view of the subject, See, e.g., http://www.nybusinesslitigationlawyer.com/blog/noncompete-may-still-be-valid-even-if-youre-fired-suggests-ny-court.cfm.
