Won Defense Verdict for Berkshire Hathaway Company in Federal Employment Trial

SouthBank Legal’s client, a manufacturer owned by Berkshire Hathaway, was sued in federal court for employment discrimination.  SouthBank Legal mounted an aggressive defense and deposed the plaintiff over multiple days. During the deposition, SouthBank Legal discovered that the plaintiff had retained, but not produced, scores of text messages. SouthBank Legal commenced a forensic examination of the phone and obtained communications that undercut the plaintiff’s allegations. At trial, SouthBank Legal utilized these text messages to cross-examine the plaintiff and forced him to admit that he lied during the deposition. The jury returned a verdict exonerating SouthBank Legal’s client on every count.
