BlackBerry turns to the courts to stop executive from defecting to Apple
But before Marineau-Mes could sit at his new desk at Apple, BlackBerry sued to prevent him from going anywhere. As it turns out, under the terms of a contract signed by Marineau-Mes for a promotion, he had to give BlackBerry six months notice before leaving. And sure enough, the Ontario Superior Court of Justice saw it the same way, which means that the executive will have to wait until June 23rd before receiving his new business cards.
We're not sure why BlackBerry would still want this guy sitting around for another three months. After all, he is leaving for a rival company, he surely has to be bitter about the whole thing, and he probably can't wait to leave. We get the whole idea of John Chen showing off BlackBerry's newly found determination and strength, but why would you want someone like that hanging around your HQ everyday when his mind is California dreaming?
Perhaps Chen is hoping that Marineau-Mes gets an eyeful of the BlackBerry Windermere and decides to stay.
