Millions more in alleged damages saved in defense of our clients:
Wrongfully Accused Of Securities Fraud, Founder Of Georgia Hydroponic Farm Company Vindicated By Plaintiff’s Apology Letter. Our client informed Fried Bonder White that he had been wrongfully sued for securities fraud and was concerned about the lasting impact on his reputation. The suit arose from an investment from a wealthy investor in PodPonics, a Georgia based hydroponic farming company founded by Fried Bonder White’s client. The client authorized an aggressive and steadfast defense with the goal of restoring his reputation. The case proceeded into discovery over many months and involved detailed analysis of thousands of pages of technical documents and communications, numerous depositions taken in Georgia, Nebraska, and New York, and the issuance of expert reports. At the conclusion of discovery, Fried Bonder White served an aggressive sanctions motion on Prairie Ventures seeking the recovery of all of our client’s fees and expenses. Prairie dismissed its claims without any payment and issued a letter confirming that the firm’s client did not engage in any of the alleged wrongful conduct.
Election Fraud Averted. The firm successfully represented over 100 members of an international hotel owner’s association for election irregularities. The Directors sought to remain in office by canceling elections. This case was handled on an emergency basis, covered by local newspapers as well as nationally in hospitality-related periodicals. The final hearing was before a courtroom so full that there was standing room only with many interested parties forced to wait outside. The firm was successful in forcing the elections to proceed.
$750,000 Demand Resolved for Nominal Amount. The firm obtained a very favorable result for a large international textile manufacturer. The dispute with its international sales representative involved substantial questions of international law, a parallel civil action in Korea, and a concurrent appeal pending in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit. Through the use of interpreters, multiple mediations, and a very aggressive and active motions practice, this case was resolved for a small fraction of the demand.
Texas Putative Class Action Defeated. Fried Bonder White successfully defeated a class action brought against its client, a publicly traded, Georgia-based credit card and check processor, in the U.S. District Court for Texas. The class alleged that our client charged unreasonable fees on checks returned for insufficient funds. Under the laws of several states, such charges are restricted to a “reasonable fee.” Fried Bonder White twice moved to dismiss the class and opposed class certification. In a detailed ruling, the district court dismissed the action with prejudice, which is extraordinary relief for a class claim at this stage.
Invalid Restrictive Covenant Stricken. When our client was sued for allegedly violating restrictive covenants, we told the other side the covenants did not hold water. They persisted in trying to interrupt business and extract a payment. We persisted too. The case was thrown out on summary judgment.
Summary Judgment to Former Employee Sued for Stealing Trade Secrets. When a former employer came after our client accusing her of stealing trade secrets, we demanded proof. When we filed our summary judgment motion, they dismissed the case.
