Firm Wins Defense Verdict in Employment Dispute

Attorney and Partner Stewart Duggan defended a medical clinic against a former employee's employment claims alleging breach of contract.  The defendant-employer denied liability and asserted counterclaims against the employee for misuse and conversion of certain confidential information.

The Court rendered a complete defense verdict in January 2014—denying the former employee’s breach-of-contract claim and granting the employer’s counterclaims. The court awarded the medical clinic $20,000 in damages and $25,000 in attorney’s fees.
