What is the reach of non-compete agreements in software

I signed an agreement before taking my current job that simply says I will not compete for a year. I work for a company selling software and occasionally using the same software for consulting. I want to quit and consult for a company that would be an end user, and I would develop for them to use in-house a software with some common components with what I worked on at my current company. Basically they are both wrappers for a third party software which is open source. I would not be selling what I develop, it would be for in-house use by this prospective client. I'm live in one state, the company I currently work for is in another state, and the prospective client is in yet another state. None of these states is California. Can my current employer file suit against me?
