Does a non-compete apply to clients who decide to leave the former employer

My non-compete states that I can not sell to anyone who was a client of my former employer. A large client that was mine has called me stating that they have fired my former employer. Would the non-compete be enforceable on clients that ceased doing business with my former employer? How would I hurt my former employer if they have already lost the client?

I beleive that there are a lot more facts that must be brought to bear on this and any employment lawyer needs to see the actual agreement and understand the terms before answering. You need to see an employment lawyer and discuss the facts and issues to see whether the non-compete would apply or not.
