Noncompete agreement

A federal appeals court has ruled that a man who started his own business did not violate his noncompete agreement with his former employer when he solicited business within the employer's target sales area. The court ruled that merely soliciting business does not violate the agreement. To do so, the man's business must be physically located within the target sales area. (United Rentals v. Keizer, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit, No. 02-1580, 2004)
