Case Dismissed and Fees Awarded

SBJ Shareholder Jeff James, assisted by Associate Nate Bailey, recently obtained the dismissal with prejudice of a lawsuit filed against our client and one of its employees by the former employer. The case arose after our client hired a number of persons previously employed by the plaintiff corporation. During the course of the litigation the plaintiff corporation asserted claims for breach of contract, tortious interference, violation of the uniform trade secrets act, violation of the consumer protection act, injurious falsehood, and unjust enrichment. Not only did Jeff and Nate succeed in getting all claims dismissed with prejudice, they succeeded in getting sanctions against the plaintiff corporation and its counsel, and a full award of attorney fees and costs to SBJ’s client for having had to defend frivolous claims.
