Our client, a small corporation and distributor of medical products, sued a multi-national corporation. The defendant corporation had an exclusive distribution arrangement to market our client's surgical laser. Our client contended that rather than using its best efforts to market the laser to the entire medical community, the defendant multi-national corporation tried to maximize their own profits by entering into partnerships directly with urologists and others in the medical community. The jury found that defendant breached the contract with our client, made intentional and negligent misrepresentations, and awarded a verdict of $9.3 million. Case settled on appeal after filing of opening brief. Plaintiffs' estimate the judgment was worth approximately $12.1 million at the time of settlement.
