Infringement Claim Settled for $5K

In a broker liability action, Marc Zimet settled a potential multimillion dollar lawsuit involving a popular line of troll dolls for only $5,000.

Plaintiff alleged that the broker failed to procure the proper insurance to cover the defense costs of a copyright infringement action involving the plaintiff’s line of troll dolls. In lieu of its shortened defense, the plaintiff was forced to discontinue the sale of its product and cease negotiations with several national retailers willing to put the dolls on their shelves.

Based upon our diligent analysis of the evidence, and some unsung prowess in the field of copyright law, we were able to convince the plaintiff its claims lie not against the broker, but against its former attorneys hired to defend the plaintiff in the copyright infringement action.
