WZ Wins Trial Verdict on Contract and Business Tort Claims

The Weiss Zarett Litigation Department, led by trial attorney Joshua D. Sussman, secured a defense verdict on behalf of a limited-service laboratory registrant and its principals (collectively, the Lab”) on commercial claims arising from the COVID-19 testing for a prominent national event. 

After a one-month trial, the Westchester County jury returned a defense verdict in favor of the Lab. The Firm defeated the plaintiff, a personal security company that demanded $10,000,000 in damages, on all of its remaining claims against the Lab for breach of non-disclosure agreement, unfair competition, tortious interference with contract, and tortious interference with prospective business relationship. Before trial, the Firm’s motion for summary judgment resulted in the dismissal of the plaintiff’s breach of contract claim.
