Verdicts and Settlements

$4,000,000.00 VERDICT

Plaintiff hired Mr. Young three weeks before a nine week trial on behalf of a terminated employee facing a trade secrets suit with a cross complaint for wrongful termination. Mr. Young obtained a non-suit on the trade secret case, then won a $4,000,000.00 verdict, proving that a commission salesman who believed he was an independent contractor was actually an employee and had been wrongfully terminated in violation of public policy. The verdict included more than $1,000,000.00 in emotional distress damages.
