Court Enforces Maryland Non-Compete

Judge Alexander Williams granted an employer's motion for preliminary restraining order in Medserv International, Inc. v. Michael Rooney (8:05-cv-03173-AW March 21, 2006), and directed Mr. Rooney to refrain from soliciting MedSev's clients. The non-compete agreement states that Rooney "shall not, directly or indirectly, compete with [MedServ] or solicit any customer of [MedServ]." Although the Court struck the agreement's general ban on competition using its blue pencil authority, the Court enforced the agreement's prohibition on client solicitation.

If you email me, I will send you a copy of the decision.
