On June 23, 2017, Edward Feldman won a treble damages award and attorneys’ fees in a license and trademark case tried to a jury in October 2016. The jury had rejected our client’s opponents’ claim for nearly $30 million in damages from an alleged breach of contract and tortious interference, and awarded our client $5 million in trademark damages and $1.6 million in contract damages. On June 23, the trial court trebled the trademark award to $15 million and awarded attorneys’ fees and costs of over $2.2 million, bringing the total judgment to nearly $19 million. Mr. Feldman tried the case with Pete Ross, an attorney at Browne George Ross in Los Angeles.
On February 23, 2017, the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit affirmed a judgment dismissing a $600 million RICO claim brought against a large law firm represented by Marc Beem, Edward Feldman, Tom Staunton and Kay Dawson. The Court agreed with our firm’s showing that the lengthy complaint in the case failed to allege that our client had entered into any agreement with other defendants to violate RICO.
