1 p.m. 02A03-1301-PL-14. Purdue University. Robert Kuntz owns Kunodu, Inc., which was in the business of selling, repairing, rebuilding, and/or refurbishing electric automobile motors on real property also owned by Kuntz through B-K Interests, LLC.  In 2006, Kuntz sold Kunodu’s assets to another business and both Kuntz and Kunodu entered into a covenant not to compete as part of the sale.  B-K Interests also entered into a lease agreement with the company for use of the real property.  In 2011, the original buyer sold the business assets to EVI, LLC, and also assigned the covenant not to compete and lease.  After negotiations to extend the lease of the property failed, EVI moved to a new location and continued its business.  In 2012, EVI filed a motion for preliminary injunction alleging Kuntz had been engaging in activities that are substantially similar to the activities engaged in by EVI, both personally and by allowing a similar business on the property.  After a hearing, the trial court entered an order enjoining Kuntz, Kunodu, and B-K Interests from any further violations of the covenant not to compete, extending the term of the covenant not to compete, and ordering them to pay EVI’s attorney fees.  Kuntz, Kunodu, and B-K Interests now appeal, arguing the trial court erred in granting the preliminary injunction because EVI has not shown a likelihood of success at trial, and further arguing the trial court erred in modifying the terms of the covenant not to compete and entering a judgment for attorney fees.

  1. Being dedicated to a genre keeps it alive until the masses catch up to the "trend." Kent and Bill are keepin' it LIVE!! Thank you gentlemen..you know your JAZZ.

  2. Hemp has very little THC which is needed to kill cancer cells! Growing cannabis plants for THC inside a hemp field will not work...where is the fear? From not really knowing about Cannabis and Hemp or just not listening to the people teaching you through testimonies and packets of info over the last few years! Wake up Hoosier law makers!

  3. If our State Government would sue for their rights to grow HEMP like Kentucky did we would not have these issues. AND for your INFORMATION many medical items are also made from HEMP. FOOD, FUEL,FIBER,TEXTILES and MEDICINE are all uses for this plant. South Bend was built on Hemp. Our states antiquated fear of cannabis is embarrassing on the world stage. We really need to lead the way rather than follow. Some day.. we will have freedom in Indiana. And I for one will continue to educate the good folks of this state to the beauty and wonder of this magnificent plant.

  4. Put aside all the marijuana concerns, we are talking about food and fiber uses here. The federal impediments to hemp cultivation are totally ridiculous. Preposterous. Biggest hemp cultivators are China and Europe. We get most of ours from Canada. Hemp is as versatile as any crop ever including corn and soy. It's good the governor laid the way for this, regrettable the buffoons in DC stand in the way. A statutory relic of the failed "war on drugs"

  5. Cannabis is GOOD for our PEOPLE and GOOD for our STATE... 78% would like to see legal access to the product line for better Hoosier Heath. There is a 25% drop in PAIN KILLER Overdoses in states where CANNABIS is legal.
