District Court Dismisses Counterclaims and Bars Evidence
On September 30, 2020, Minnesota District Court Chief Judge Tunheim agreed with the argument raised by Morris & Morris and Dismissed Counterclaims and barred admission of any documentary evidence in a ruling that positions M&M's client for success going into a multi-million dollar trial -- all due to the substantial efforts undertaken by the Morris & Morris Litigation Team.
District Court Awards Monetary and Adverse Jury Instruction
On Friday, August 21, 2020, Chief Judge Tunheim, from the United States District Court for the District of Minnesota, confirmed a sanctions award in favor of the Morris & Morris Litigation and M&A Teams, related to a multi-million Merger & Acquisition gone awry (negotiated by a different M&A Firm). The sanctions amounted to over $110,000 in monetary relief, including sanctions against opposing counsel under 28 U.S.C. §1927 for counsel's vexatious conduct, as well as an Adverse Jury Instruction for destruction and withholding of key evidence. This award, by a District Court, constitutes a substantial victory, and provides a position of power for the client going into a multi-million dollar trial -- all due to the substantial efforts undertaken by the M&M Litigation Team.
The Kentucky Court of Appeals Sanctions Counsel and Reverses
In a discrimination case handled by the Morris & Morris Litigation Team for the past 25 years -- a case that the Presiding Judge of the Kentucky Court of Appeals advised was "the oldest currently active pending case in the entire Commonwealth of Kentucky," the Kentucky Court of Appeals summarily REVERSED the trial court, holding that "the decision-making responsibility of the circuit judge had been abdicated in contravention of applicable Kentucky law." Simultaneously, the Court of Appeals issued Sanctions against the attorney for the LFUCG, finding that his conduct was in direct violation of Kentucky Civil Rule 11. Because of the extensive effort of the Morris & Morris Litigation Team, the victims of egregious discriminatory misconduct at the local government can finally be heard.
