Firm Prevails after Two Week Jury Trial

Firm Prevails after Two Week Jury Trial

Rob Klein and Alex Diaz were successful in a two week jury trial, based upon claims of legal malpractice, breach of fiduciary duty, and conversion. The claim was based in part upon the Plaintiffs’ contention that the Defendant attorneys had recovered an excessive fee while serving as counsel for several objectors in class action litigation against the Bank of America. Plaintiff’s also claimed that the objections had not been properly presented or preserved for appeal, despite the fact that the trial court in the class action proceedings ultimately ruled that some $35 million would be placed back into the class award, as a result of a cy pres objection that was raised by the Defendant attorneys. The jury returned a verdict for the Defendant attorneys in less than two hours.
