Court Petitioned Grant A New Trial
Dousette v. Red Brick Pizza
By Mulcahy LLP on January 08, 2013
In Dousette v. Red Brick Pizza (Los Angeles County Superior Court) the firm, representing a franchisor, successfully petitioned the court to grant a new trial following a trial handled by other counsel.
The court vacated the $6.5 million jury verdict against the franchisor and ordered a new trial after the firm convinced the judge to take the unusual step of re-opening discovery and conducting post-trial hearings. The firm prevailed after seven months of discovery and hearings, after which the court found that the plaintiff had withheld evidence during the trial. The decision was affirmed on appeal.
