Of Miles and Hair Styles

Poster2
First it was the battling dog walkers. Now the hair stylists. Non-competes turn up in the most interesting of places. This in Michigan news via the AP:

The Michigan appeals court says Annie Keegan broke a no-compete clause by cutting hair 4.16 miles from her former employer, Lockworks.

Keegan's agreement with Lockworks barred her from working within 5 miles for a year after leaving the salon in 2006. An Ingham County judge said 4.16 miles seemed far enough away. But the appeals court this week overturned that decision, saying 5 miles means 5 miles.
