Representative Experience
  • General Experience
    • Grand Slam Club/Ovis v. International Sheep Hunters Association, CV 2:06cv4643-SLB (N.D. Ala. 2010)
      We successfully represented Grand Slam/Ovis on its claims of copyright and trademark infringement as well as intentional tortious interference with business and in defending against claims of tortious interference and breach of contract. After a two week jury trial in January 2008, the jury rendered verdicts for our client on all counts, and awarded our client damages totaling $1.9 million. The court denied defendants’ numerous post-trial motions and entered a permanent injunction in favor of our client. Pursuant to a settlement agreement that avoided an appeal, the court entered a modified injunction in December 2010 and released $1,650,000 to our client from defendants’ cash bond.
