Following a 13-day trial before the Hon. Victor Chavez, at the Spring Street Courthouse, our motion for judgment was granted after Plaintiff rested his case-in-chief. We represented the court-appointed trustee who inherited the claims against the trust based on Plaintiff's $1.4 million investment in real estate developments in 2006. We offered $800,000 before trial commenced; Plaintiff never made a demand or counter-offer, and then Plaintiff's forensic accounting expert claimed that Plaintiff was entitled to damages of $8.5 million. Judgment was entered in favor of Defendants on September 6, 2018.
