A Davidson County chancellor denied Nashville orthodontics startup SmileDirectClub an injunction against Align Technology, its competitor, supplier and investor, the Nashville Post reports. Arbitration between the two companies is expected to take place by the end of the year. SmileDirect sued Align in April after the latter company upped its stake in SmileDirect to 19 percent ownership. SmileDirect argued that Align was violating an agreement by investing in the company and simultaneously seeking to launch a store similar to SmileDirect’s.
