U.S. Fifth Circuit affirms federal jury's "zero" verdict that Flanagan Partners won for its client

U.S. Fifth Circuit affirms federal jury's "zero" verdict that Flanagan Partners won for its client.

In June 2012, Flanagan Partners represented a company, Pacific West Resources, LLC, sued by a local businessman and actor Stephen Baldwin. The pair claimed that the firm's client had defrauded them to the tune of more than $17 million. After a nine-day trial, a federal jury found for the defendants and gave plaintiffs nothing. The plaintiffs appealed. But the Fifth Circuit was unpersuaded by their theories. It affirmed the jury's verdict entirely.Contogouris v. Pacific West Resources, L.L.C., 2013 WL 6623552 (5th Cir. 2013).
