From 1998 to 2019, Kerr was employed by Edward Jones. Kerr`s employment ended at a meeting on August 1, 2019 at which Kerr was „allowed to resign.” Shortly before the August 1, 2019 meeting, Kerr printed confidential client reports. Kerr stated that he printed the reports to prepare for the meeting and destroyed them after the meeting, but Edward Jones claimed that Kerr had printed the reports because he knew he was about to be fired and was using the documents to request clients. On August 2, 2019, Kerr began working at another company and informed his customers by phone that he had changed businesses.

Kerr admitted that he sent packets of information about his new company to customers who requested additional information. Edward Jones contacted the client by telephone and letter informing him that Kerr had left Edward Jones and that his accounts were being reallocated. Edward Jones claimed that Kerr had asked unidentified clients to transfer their accounts to his new company. In contrast, Kerr stated that he had not asked any client to transfer assets to his new company and submitted sworn assurances from eight clients who confirmed his version of events. The Kerr Court found that many courts rejected the theory that an advertisement such as Kerr`s was an invitation, even if an employment contract prohibited direct or indirect advertising; However, staff changes should be taken into account with caution in all customer notifications. The court then concluded that Edward Jones would not suffer irreparable harm without damages to the charge and found that there was no need to address the balance of damages before a solution was refused. Nevertheless, the court found that there was a „judicial reluctance to limit financial communication with their clients” because of the relationship of trust between clients and their financial advisors. Although the court recognized that non-contractual injunctions were enforceable against former RRs, it suggested that courts be reluctant to disclose information that informs clients that RRs has modified their businesses.
