School, physician in non-compete dispute

Judges are not usually sympathetic to employee non-competes involving physicians, and it looks like judges in Iowa are going to get a crack at one that looks awfully broad.  The University of Iowa and a plastic suregon are locked in a dispute that arose when Dr. Al Aly left the UI hospitals, where he had been since 1997, to help start Iowa City Plastic Surgery in Coralville.

Under the employment contract, Dr. Al Aly agreed not to "practice medicine" for two years within a 50-mile radius of "any" UI health facility.
