Lawsuit alleges breach of contract by Ohio hospital

The Cleveland Clinic, which holds the lease for a 100-year-old hospital in Lakewood, Ohio, announced that it wanted to close the facility in 2016, 10 years before the end of its lease in 2026. The city and several council members have signed on as plaintiffs in a lawsuit against the clinic and several other defendants, alleging breach of contract and breach of fiduciary duty, among other charges.

When cooperation turns to litigation, we can help

One of the advantages that commercial transactions have at the outset is the convergence of interests between the business partners: everybody is interested in making money. But sometimes after the ink is dry on the contract what began as a case of great expectations can break down into something that you did not anticipate or want, and you can find yourself seeking a way to salvage the situation or even to get out of it.

An overview of non-compete agreements in Ohio

The saying, "Knowledge is power" is one that many businesses in this state understand even if they never utter those words. In the present-day information era, often what is most important to a company's profitability or even its survival consists of data, processes, customer lists, trade secrets and other intangibles that cannot be physically removed from the employer's premises but which can be taken away in the experience and knowledge of departing employees. The loss of key information to a competitor can spell disaster for a business if a former employee divulges it without any concern for the consequences to his former employer or to himself.

Contract disputes in Ohio

If two individuals or organizations enter into a written agreement, it is considered to be a contract. If the one of the parties does not meet their obligations as defined by the agreements, they are considered to be in breach of contract. When this occurs, the dispute can either be resolved through mediation, arbitration or through the court system, and the court system is the most common way of handling disputes.
