Harty-Stefani Article Quoted by Eighth Circuit

August 8, 2017

In an opinion written by Chief Judge Smith and filed August 2, the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals decided Ag Spectrum Company v. Elder, involving a covenant not to compete, and cited a law review article written by Nyemaster attorneys Frank Harty and Ryan Stefani in support of the court’s reasoning.


The article, titled “Drafting and Enforcing Non-Compete Clauses in Iowa: A Thirty-Year Review,” contributed to the court’s conclusion as to whether the Iowa Supreme Court would view the court or the jury as the proper arbiter of the enforceability of a covenant not to compete.
