Employment covenants

Judge Gregory McGuire of the North Carolina Business Court recently put a set of restrictive employment covenants under the microscope in a lengthy opinion that should serve as a primer for attorneys drafting employment contracts.

Accounting malpractice

Claims that fraudulent audits allowed a Burlington company to hide huge losses in a
reinsurance pool led to a $250 million settlement that topped Lawyers Weekly’s survey of the 25 largest verdicts and settlements in 2005.

Patent law

The plaintiff, an expert in home remodeling and construction in North and South Carolina, sought to recover damages and enforce his rights under an exclusive licensing agreement with the patent holder of a product he invented called Gutter Guard and/or Gutter Protector, an invention that keeps leaves out of roof gutters.

Wrongful death

Deceased entered intersection on green light. Tractor-trailer ran red light. $2.12 million settlement.

A plaintiff’s allegation that a Charlotte car dealership sold her a lemon didn’t get very  far with the judge and jury, and her claims of fraud and misrepresentation, among others, netted her nothing but a big win for the auto dealership.

Products liability

Plane crash; vibration damper defect alleged; engine failure; real estate company founder, wife killed; eight children. $26.05 million settlement

Failure to diagnose

The plaintiff, Terrence Forrest, is a 46-year-old business consultant.
