  Implied Covenant and Common Law Fraud - $5,285,200 Jury Verdict

Our business litigation team secured for our clients, a computer training school in Silicon Valley, the harshest civil verdict possible under California civil law, returning a verdict of $3,635,200 in compensatory damages and $1,500,000 in punitive damages against one defendant and $150,000 against another.  

An Alameda County jury found defendants, a San Jose businessman and American Business College International, to have committed fraudulent misconduct by entering into an agreement without the intent to perform. A unanimous jury reached verdicts under both the implied covenant and common law fraud. After an extensive trial, the jury returned a total award of $5,285,200.
