Fraud And Breach Of Contract
Stuft Pizza v. Rai
By Mulcahy LLP on January 08, 2013
In Stuft Pizza v. Rai (Orange County Superior Court) the firm represented a franchisor who sued four terminated franchisees for trademark infringement and related claims. The firm also defended the franchisees’ $3.5 million counterclaim for fraud and breach of contract.
Following a five week trial, the firm obtained a jury verdict in favor of the franchisor on both the franchisor’s claim and the counterclaim. The verdict was in excess of the damages sought by the franchisor. The firm also secured an award of treble damages and attorney’s fees, as well as a permanent injunction. The award was not only against the corporate franchisees, but also their principals, as the firm successfully pierced the corporate veil.
