Tort/Negligence – Conversion – Damages – Unfair Trade Practices – Branch Office Takeover (access required)

Knight’s Medical Corp. v. Pickett A brother hired his sister to start up a branch office – intended to be a franchise, eventually – of his durable medical equipment business. Years later, the brother fired the sister; despite a non-compete agreement, the sister started running her own durable medical equipment business from the branch office location. The brother’s evidence of what it cost to set up and run the branch office supported the trial court’s award of damages for the sister’s conversion of the branch office.
