Helped Nonprofit Client Turn Tables on Plaintiff
In February 2007, Payne & Fears LLP assisted a nonprofit client in turning a liability into a recovery. The client had been sued for wrongful termination and discrimination by a former officer of the corporation. By uncovering evidence of the plaintiff’s improper self-dealing with the corporation during his employment, and aggressively confronting the plaintiff with that evidence during his deposition, Payne & Fears LLP was able to obtain a resolution of the matter under which the client paid nothing to the plaintiff, and the plaintiff instead agreed to make substantial payments to the client. Eric C. Sohlgren and Daniel F. Lula handled the case.
