Favorable Ruling for Local Business Owner

By: Abby Pryor

We’re excited to announce that we have achieved a favorable ruling for our client, a local Virginia Beach business owner. Our client was falsely sued for fraud by a well-known local businessman seeking damages that could have totaled well over $1 million. We filed an aggressive counterclaim seeking damages and attorney’s fees. After a four-day jury trial in Virginia Beach Circuit Court, the jury found in our favor, granting nothing to the opposition and awarding our client six-figure damages, including a significant portion of attorney’s fees.

The case is styled JTHJR, Inc. v La Bella Italia, Inc., et al., CL17-522. The Virginia Pilot reported the story here.
