Firm Successfully Defends Trial Verdict
Richard Robbins and Heather Sharp secured a decision in the Court of Appeals of Georgia upholding a jury award in a dispute between business partners over compensation structure. Following a week-long trial in 2014, a jury awarded our client almost $250,000 in damages for breach of a compensation agreement. The defendant appealed, arguing that the trial judge should have set aside the verdict because the agreement was unenforceable. In a unanimous opinion, the Court of Appeals rejected all of the defendants’ arguments, holding that there was sufficient evidence in the record to support the jury’s decision that our client was owed money under the compensation agreement. The Court of Appeals also held that the trial judge did not err in rejecting the defendant’s proposed jury instructions.
