Jury Trial Victory for Investor

Breach of Contract Litigation / 2017

Client: Dr. John Jacob Golden
Type of case: Breach of Contract
Court: Federal District Court, Northern District of Alabama
Length of trial: Three days
Amount in dispute: Approximately $300,000
Result: Summary judgment on plaintiff claims and positive jury verdict on counterclaims

Dr. Golden is a retired doctor who lives in California and invests in mobile home parks. We represented him as a plaintiff in a breach of contract claim and were awarded more than $280,000 on summary judgment.

We also defended counterclaims for breach of contract, negligence, unjust enrichment, fraud, waste, specific performance, and constructive trust during a three-day jury trial. The opposing party was awarded $21,500 on his breach of contract claim, but the results of the trial were quite positive for our client overall, with net winnings of more than $260,000.

This case is noteworthy due to the fact that Sam Pierce chaired a federal jury trial during his first one to two years of practice, and it demonstrates the Firm's commitment to providing younger associates with trial experience early in their careers.
