    Los Angeles Partner Craig Holden and San Diego Partner Gary Brucker secured a favorable jury verdict on behalf of a client who invested in a beef slaughterhouse and was defrauded. In this case, the investors entered into a joint venture to fund the slaughterhouse’s government procurement project, which focused on providing ground beef to public schools for their school lunch programs. However, the slaughterhouse’s owner misrepresented the value of the business, misused the investment funds, prevented the investor from accessing joint venture records, failed to pay profits, and commingled the joint venture assets with unrelated assets. As such, Lewis Brisbois’ client filed suit against the slaughterhouse, and the case ultimately proceeded to trial.

    Los Angeles Partner Tony M. Sain and Associate Abigail R. McLaughlin recently secured a precedent-setting appellate victory: making new law when the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit clarified the availability of civil claims arising from alleged failures to disclose exculpatory evidence in a criminal case under Brady v. Maryland, 373 U.S. 83 (1963). The new Ninth Circuit case law holds that a plaintiff cannot state a viable claim for an alleged Brady violation unless the failure to disclose exculpatory evidence affected the outcome of a pretrial criminal proceeding, or resulted in a conviction at trial or by plea. Since our client’s plaintiff could not meet the new threshold, our Los Angeles team won judgment for the defense via appeal.

    Providence Partner and East Providence City Solicitor Michael J. Marcello recently secured a victory in a property tax mater in the Rhode Island Supreme Court on behalf of a Rhode Island municipality. In this case, the appellant, a business advisory company, sought to apply a 10-year statute of limitations for property tax appeals. Specifically, the company appealed a decision of the trial court that granted summary judgment in favor of Lewis Brisbois’ municipality client. The trial court had found that the petitioner’s attempt to challenge a property tax as illegal and excessive was time-barred because it was filed more than 90 days after the initial tax was due.
