Physician Non-Competes

The Tennessee supreme court, in a case instructive for S.C. attorneys, recently held that non-compete clauses in physician employment agreements are unenforceable and void unless they're specifically established by the state legislature. The opinion was based on public policy concerns. An article discussing the opinion can be found here. I'll link to the opinion as soon as it is up on the Tennessee supreme court web site.
