Achieved a win on behalf of our client, The Dwyer Group and specifically its Mr. Appliance subsidiary, against Woodrow and Deborah Holloway, former Mr. Appliance franchisees, and The Appliance Doctor of Central Alabama, an appliance repair business operated by the Holloways. The Holloways were accused of violating their franchise agreements post-term non-compete provision and violating other obligations of their franchise agreement by failing to assign to Mr. Appliance their former MR. APPLIANCE telephone numbers. After a bench trial, we obtained a permanent injunction enforcing the non-compete provision to its full extent, an assignment of the Holloways’ former MR. APPLIANCE telephone numbers and award of attorneys’ fee.
