Cleveland jury gives unanimous verdict for C&E client Martin Enterprises

We are pleased to report that a Cleveland jury reached a unanimous verdict for Cooper & Elliott client Martin Enterprises in a dispute between contractors. Martin Enterprises is a highly regarded contractor that has been doing business in the Cleveland area for more than 35-years. After it assembled a team of three companies to bid on a valuable Army Corps of Engineers project, and after the contract was awarded to the team, the two other companies got greedy and kicked Martin Enterprises out of the project. The jury’s six-figure award sent a clear message: that’s not the way to do business in Cleveland. Congratulations to the entire Martin family for pursuing this important case about business ethics.

After a lengthy battle that required two separate mediations, Cooper & Elliott reached terms with Trans Union on behalf of more than 10,500 Ohioans.

Justice prevails: $2.825 million jury verdict

On December 12, 2011 a Franklin County jury returned a $2.8 million verdict for our client and his parents for injuries our client suffered as a result of an assault at a campus bar in August 2006. Bouncers at Miani’s Bar callously allowed angry drunk patrons to attack our client, leading to severe head injuries and hearing loss. The jury provided compensation for future wage loss, past and future pain and suffering, and loss of consortium, and imposed punitive damages as well. Attorney fees were also awarded, which will make the total judgment in excess of $3.5 million. We are honored to have represented the family of our client in this lengthy legal battle and applaud the courage that it took for them to pursue this case to verdict.
