Caroll Anesthesia Associates, P.C. v. Anesthecare, Inc.

Court of Appeals Decision recognizing action for tortious interference with Contractual and Business Relations


This case was the response to a take over of an anesthesiology practice by hiring all of an anesthesiologist's certified nurse anesthetists. The court of appeals held that, while the fair competition privilege normally protects one hiring another's at will employee, such activity is not privileged where the defendant hires away all or substantially all of a competitor's key employees, especially where the employees were recruited in part through an inducement in the form of an indemnity agreement in the event the former employer sued the recruited employee for violating restrictive employment agreements.
