UNIVERSAL HEALTH SERVS., INC. v. RENAISSANCE WOMEN'S GROUP, 02-0193
Lease and accompanying letter agreements were not ambiguous, and as a matter of law they did not obligate an owner to operate a hospital for the entire term of the lease; physicians have waived any right to an implied covenant of continuous operation.
