Material Breach Roger Bannister was the director of technical and product development for Bemis Co..

Material Breach Roger Bannister was the director of
technical and product development for Bemis Co. He signed a covenant not to
compete that prohibited him from working for a “confl icting organization” for
eighteen months following his termination, but required Bemis to pay his salary
if he was unable to fi nd a job “consistent with his abilities and education.”
Bemis terminated Bannister. Mondi Packaging, a Bemis competitor, told him that
it would like to offer him a job but could not do so because of the noncompete
agreement. Bemis released Bannister from the agreement with respect to “all
other companies than Mondi” and refused to pay his salary. Nine months later,
Bannister accepted a position with Bancroft Bag, Inc., another Bemis
competitor. He fi led a suit in a federal district court against his former
employer. Do these facts show a material breach of contract? If so, what is the
appropriate remedy? Explain. [Bannister v. Bemis Co., Inc., 556 F.3d 882 (8th
Cir. 2009)] Happy With My Content? Buy Me Coffee
