What restrictions are reasonable as to time and place?
Restriction reasonable in time and place.
A. In King v Head Start Family Hair Salons, 886 So.2d 769 (Ala. 2004), the court held that a 2-mile restriction zone around each of 30 locations in Jefferson and Shelby counties was unreasonable (but such a zone around the last location was reasonable).
B. In Nobles-Hamilton v Thompson, 838 So.2d 360 (Ala Civ App 2003), the court upheld an agreement which did not contain a geographical limitation but which the trial court enforced with a 5-mile exclusion zone.
