A young friend of mine got a job with a service company that does substantial business with his (then) current employer. His current employer found out and called the employer-to-be and told them that, if they go through with the hiring, they'll discontinue doing business with the employer-to-be. In short order, the employer-to-be rescinded the job offer and the current employer terminated him.

My friend has sought me out to offer advice and, despite searching, I cannot seem to find anything specific to this situation. I have suggested that he seek the services of -- or at least an initial consultation with -- an attorney versed in employment law. He is reluctant to spend that money unless he knows that he at least has a plausible chance of recourse.
So, I am flying this question here to see if folks think that there's something here worth the attention, and attendant cost, of a session with an attorney.
This is in Washington State.
