1. What are the conflicting public policy concerns in this case?
2. Why would Mattison sue Johnston for interference rather than suing Drowne for breach?

Mattison owned a beauty salon and hired Drowne as a hair stylist. Drowne signed a restrictive covenant contract for one year following termination. Over the next 10 months, Johnston, the owner of a competing beauty salon, actively solicited Drowne to leave Mattison’s employ and work for him. Eventually Drowne quit Mattison’s salon and began working for Johnston, and Mattison sued Johnston for intentional interference with the restrictive covenant contract.
