Unanimous Jury Verdict Win for Our Client

Litigation, Investigations

The firm represented an entertainment company in an action in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California brought by two long time activists.  The plaintiffs and their associates have an extensive litigation history, claiming civil rights violations in connection with their protest activities against the company’s business.  The firm was successful in obtaining a unanimous jury verdict two (2) years ago in a federal lawsuit brought by plaintiffs’ associates and again won a unanimous jury verdict in favor of the company.  The trial in the recent action lasted nearly three (3) weeks, with many of plaintiffs’ causes of action dismissed or adjudicated in the company’s favor before trial.  On the remaining causes of action that went to trial, the jury found no liability against the company or its individually-named defendant employee and declined to award plaintiffs anything.
