12-0 Defense Verdict against Defamation Claim

Marc Zimet and Steve Markowitz obtained a unanimous defense verdict in a two week trial involving claims of defamation and interference with contract. Our insurance agent client allegedly defamed the plaintiff by calling it a fraud to plaintiff’s large business client. The plaintiff’s business client thereafter cancelled plaintiff’s contract for services. The jury concluded that our client’s statement to plaintiff’s business client was true and, as such, served as a complete defense to plaintiff’s claim.
