Another Trial Victory - Following a three week jury trial, Shareholder Jason E. Fellner and Associate Allen Kuo obtained a complete defense verdict in favor of their law firm client. Despite plaintiff's alleged damages of $1.3 million, the jury, which deliberated for less than 3 hours, determined that defendant law firm was not liable for any wrongdoing. Instead, the jury determined that plaintiff breached his contract with defendant resulting in a judgment in favor of defendant in excess of $100,000.00. (Caraway v. Taggart, et al., (Alameda County Superior Court 2016).)
