In MurfreesboroMedical Clinic vs. Udom, the Tennessee Supreme Court ruled that restrictive covenants are not enforceable against physicians, unless specifically prescribed by law. In handing down this decision, the Court overturned an appellate court decision enforcing the restrictive covenant. Although restrictive covenants are otherwise enforceable in Tennessee, the Court found that interfering with patient freedom of choice was sufficient justification to reject enforcement.
