I’ve also been following the trial pitting former Properties of the Villages agents against their former company.
Long story short as I understand it, two former agents started a competing real estate firm in The Villages despite having signed non-compete agreements. They are arguing that their non-compete agreements should not stand because they were treated as employees and not independent contractors while at Properties of The Villages.

One interesting bit from her testimony:
“Parr said under oath that The Villages will double in size and that State Road 44 is now seen by the Morse family as the geographic center of the community.”
