Maslon Client Prevails in Breach of Contract/Tortious Interference Case Before Federal Jury

April 7, 2011

A 12-person federal jury awarded a Maslon client nearly $1.7 million in damages as a remedy for breach of contract and tortious interference relating to the termination of a sales representative relationship. The verdict, in favor of the Maslon client on both counts presented to the jury, was delivered on April 1, 2011, after two hours of deliberation following a week-long trial before the Honorable Donovan W. Frank in United States District Court for the District of Minnesota.

Maslon represented the client at trial with respect to its claims against a global software company. Maslon's client alleged that the defendant wrongfully interfered with its prospective customer relationships and breached the parties' sales representative agreement when it ended a long-standing sales representative relationship on two days' notice, then raided the plaintiff's employees and failed to pay commissions owed.
