Jim Cole Obtains Defense Verdict

Jim Cole recently obtained a defense verdict in a trial in Chatsworth. The plaintiff, GIM Technology, Inc. sued our client, CLI International, seeking $500,000.00 in damages. At issue in the case were efforts by the plaintiff to collect for faulty parts purchased by CLI. At the Mandatory Settlement Conference, GIM stated its final offer was $500,000.00. CLI offered $50,000.00. The case then went to trial.

The first $200,000.00 in plaintiff’s claim was defeated in pre-trial motions in limine. At trial, Cole was successful in keeping out any evidence of damages. As a result, the jury returned a defense verdict.
