Ed Bertholet & Associates, Inc. v. Ed Stefanko
Indiana Court of Appeals
690 N.E.2d 361 (1998)
Ed Stefanko (defendant) entered into an employment contract with Ed Bertholet & Associates, Inc. (Bertholet) (plaintiff) to work as a bail bondsman. The employment contract included a covenant not to compete and provided for an injunction in the event Stefanko breached the covenant. Approximately three years later, Stefanko voluntarily quit working for Bertholet and, shortly thereafter, started working for a competitor. Bertholet filed suit against Stefanko seeking to enforce the covenant not to compete and sought a preliminary restraining order and injunction as provided for in the employment contract. The trial court denied Bertholet’s petition because Bertholet failed to demonstrate irreparable harm that would result by not granting the injunction. Bertholet appealed.
