    No. If there are, say, five companies in the market that might hire you
    for top $$$ and in the course of one of these contracts, you break
    an NDA for all the good reasons and even get away with it, the others will
    never ever again touch you with a polestick. So this is economic retaliation
    without even having to go to court. You can't force them to hire you.

    Keeping your mouth shut even if you know something that is not legal?
    Not nice, but normal. Immoral? Yes. But understandably if you have
    mouth to feed and mortgages to pay.

    Regards
    Henning
