IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — The University of Iowa and the Iowa Board of Regents have sued a former University of Iowa doctor, saying he violated a noncompete clause when he began working at a Cedar Rapids clinic.
The Gazette reports (http://bit.ly/Pl69RD) that the lawsuit says Dr. Bogdan Cherascu (kur-RAS'-koo) took a job with the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics in August 2008. The lawsuit says Cherascu signed a noncompete agreement that said he wouldn't practice medicine within 50 miles of UI for two years after a voluntary departure.
The lawsuit says Cherascu left the university's employ on June 30 and is working at Physician's Clinic of Iowa, in Cedar Rapids, about 30 miles from UI in Iowa City.
Cherascu didn't immediately return a call Monday from The Associated Press.
