An arbitrator has awarded Nashville-based teeth aligner company SmileDirectClub a massive legal victory in its dispute with the makers of Invisalign braces, the Nashville Post reports. The arbitrator said Align Technology broke a non-compete clause, misused confidential SmileDirectClub information and violated its fiduciary duties toward the company. The arbitrator ordered California-based Align to close its 12 retail stores — the first of which opened in late 2017 — by April 3 and extended its non-compete clause to the summer of 2022.
