By Chronicle news services - Sunday Jul 30, 2017
New England Patriots defensive stalwart Rob Ninkovich capped his 11-year NFL career by announcing his retirement Sunday after the team’s morning practice at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass. Since joining the Patriots in 2009, Ninkovich had proved to be one of the team’s most durable and dependable players. A defensive end and linebacker, he was a two-time co-captain and won two Super Bowls with New England. Ninkovich had been absent since training camp started Thursday for what the team called personal reasons. “I wanted to make sure I made the right choice,” Ninkovich said. “That was talking with my family, and looking at the pros and cons.

- Veeva Systems lawsuit challenges noncompete agreements
By Peter Blumberg and Sarah McBride - Tuesday Jul 18, 2017
Veeva Systems Inc., a target of lawsuits over hiring away employees from rivals in life sciences cloud computing, is now trying to turn the tables.In announcing its suit against three companies that have sought court orders to block ex-employees from joining Veeva or allegedly threatened litigation — Medidata Solutions Inc., Quintiles IMS Inc. and Sparta Systems Inc. — Veeva said it’s taking a stand to end a practice it views as anticompetitive.“Employees should have the right to move freely between jobs, advance their careers and improve their lives without fear of being sued by their former employers,” Veeva CEO Peter Gassner said in a statement.Medidata, based in New York City, said it supports and respects the rights of workers to build their careers, but it sued Veeva in January over the defection of five employees, challenging the Pleasanton company’s “illegal targeting and unfair use of our trade secrets.”Typically, a noncompete agreement — which many job candidates in the tech world have to sign as a condition of employment — bars them from working on rival products for a set period of time, say a year, after leaving their current employer.Supporters say they help protect trade secrets and other confidential information and prevent rapid turnover at companies that have made big investments to train employees.
