Contractor w/out NON-compete still sued?

I performed contract (10-99) work for an Ohio based company. We did not have a NON-compete, NON-solicit, or NON-discloser agreement. I quit to start my own practice in the same field. He is now suing me because some of his past clients (not on contract and on contract) want to come over to me. Does he have a case?

The short answer to your question, is "probably not," unless he can establish (a) you are using his trade secrets to compete unfairly with him or (b) you solicited those contacts/customers for you new venture before your left his employ.
