PLTQ Lotus Group v Peterson Group and Wellington Yu Harris County Texas District Court July 2009

Lead counsel in a three-week trial where our client's principal was alleged to have engaged in fraud and other torts regarding his employment services on a development project. Based on information learned in discovery, our client's principal faced a significant threat of a verdict against him on these claims with more than $11 million being sought against him and his companies. In the end, the jury threw out the majority of claims and awarded less than $10,000 in damages against our principal on a claim with no attorneys' fees.
