Publicly Traded Company/Breach of Contract
Represented plaintiff in prosecution of breach of contract claim predicated on defendants’ disparagement of client via the internet and email using fake online personas obtaining damage award and permanent order of injunction against the defendants. Proved client’s claims by obtaining evidence of internet protocol addresses and financial transactions to prove defendants were source of disparaging content. Litigious nature of defendants resulted in the filing of 28 separate motions where client prevailed on all but two, one which was mooted by client’s stipulation to transfer venue, and the other was a motion to quash a deposition subpoena (prepared by prior attorney) that was granted without prejudice to allow for client to reserve subject to nominal limitations. Successfully defended cross-complaint and derivative malicious prosecution action through anti-SLAPP motions.
