Here’s a smattering of cases/disputes that are out there:

  1. Interesting article about two cases from Ohio involving a cookie entrepreneur and taco restaurant chain owner;
  2. Not in the employment world – but a Michigan judge shut down the construction of a hotel after determining it violated a non-compete;
  3. The typical pharmaceutical sales rep case – this one from Kansas City (paywall);
  4. A non-compete case from East Texas where a doctor sued a group of nurses over a non-compete; and
  5. A lawsuit by six veterinarians in Washington challenging a non-compete contained in a shareholders agreement.

Non-competes aren’t going anywhere for now but Presidential Candidate Elizabeth Warren has promised to ban them if elected.
